There are many graces given to parishes that have Eucharistic Adoration, including increased attendance at Mass and confession, an increase in vocations to the priesthood and religious life, the return of fallen-away Catholics, and greater unity.  Parishioners who avail themselves of this wonderful practice grow in their love of the Eucharist and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, for as Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has written: “Adoration outside holy Mass prolongs and intensifies what happened in the liturgical celebration and renders a true and profound reception of Christ possible.”  Please help us bring these graces to our parish by volunteering to pray during one of the hours that we will have Eucharistic Adoration.
