The Perpetual Adoration Chapel
St. Mary's Parish is participating in the Perpetual Adoration of the Exposed Real Presence of the Eucharist. The Eucharist is permanently exposed (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) in the Perpetual Adoration Chapel, located under the Sacristy on the garden side of the Church. The adoration demonstrates an appreciation on our part of the total gift of Christ's presence among us, and expresses our love for Him. We adore the true presence of Jesus -Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the exposed Eucharist. The participating parishioners have committed to spend a specific hour each week in adoration. In this way, the Blessed Sacrament is never left alone. Without these commitments, it would not be possible to have Perpetual Adoration. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to drop in at any time. Commitment to spend an hour a week with our Lord can be made by filling out a sign up card. These cards are available in the Chapel or at the Parish Office in the Rectory.
