Eucharistic Adoration

The Eucharist is the supreme proof of the love of Jesus.

- St. Peter Julian Eymard

Eucharistic Adoration invites believers to contemplate the real presence of Christ in the consecrated Eucharist. Adorers spend focused time in silent reverence before the exposed Blessed Sacrament, housed in the monstrance. The Eucharist, the body and blood of Jesus, becomes the focal point of prayer, meditation and adoration.


This intimate encounter fosters a deep spiritual connection, allowing you to draw closer to Christ, seeking solace, guidance, and renewal. Eucharistic

If you have never been to the Adoration Chapel and so are not sure what to do, know that it is not difficult. When you arrive at the chapel you will use your fob to access the building. The stand beneath the statue of Saint Julien is where you sign in. We ask people to sign in so that we have an idea of the hours and the days that people are going. 

If, when you enter the Chapel, the doors of the box around the monstrance are closed then open them. If the doors are open then in silence and reverence genuflect on both knees before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and make the Sign of the Cross. If you are not able to do this then do a deep bow before our Lord.

Below you will find information about Adoration generally as well as ideas of what to do during Adoration. 

When you are finished be sure to close the doors of the box if there is no one else in the chapel.

A Beginner’s Guide to Eucharistic Adoration

By Sarah Zentner

My first experience with Eucharistic Adoration occurred in sixth grade at my Catholic elementary school when my homeroom teacher took my entire class to the church to pray in silence in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. If you’re thinking it was difficult for 35 12-year-olds to sit still and pray in silence for an hour, then you’d be right. We squirmed and fidgeted and poked our neighbors >>more

What is Adoration?

by Becky Roach

When Catholics say they are “going to Adoration,” they are typically referring to Eucharistic Adoration. Which, in the most basic terms, is the worship of the Eucharist outside of the Mass. The Eucharistic Host is displayed in a monstrance on the altar so that all can see and pray in the presence of Christ.

We can show our adoration to God in many ways, but in Eucharistic Adoration, we spend time adoring the true presence of Christ in the Eucharist.

What Do I Do During Eucharistic Adoration?

by Becky Roach

If you attend Adoration at your parish,  it will most likely be in a small chapel or part of the Church. As a form of respect, you should always genuflect when you see the Lord in the Host. Maintain an attitude of respect, and if others are present, silence. On retreats or other special occasions, there may be music playing to help foster a spirit of prayer, worship, and Adoration. Always keep in mind that you are in the presence of God!

Kneeling, sitting, standing, and even laying on the floor before the Blessed Sacrament are all appropriate forms of prayer. Let your posture reflect your worship of the King and do what is comfortable for you.


You really don’t have to “do” anything during Adoration. You can just sit there and look at Jesus. Take the time to be with Him. If you are the only person in the chapel, don’t be afraid to pray or sing aloud. This is your personal time with Christ.

How I Answered The Question: “What Do You Personally Get Out Of Adoration?”

by Melissa Johnson

Someone asked me quite seriously the other day, “What do you personally get out of Adoration?”

It was a question that gave me pause. How do I explain? If you already accept the belief that the consecrated Host is in fact Jesus Christ, it seems plain to me that you would immediately settle yourself with the certainty that you are in Jesus’s presence, and nothing else would matter. I have to go back a bit, because I wasn’t always one hundred percent convinced; it took knowing a fantastic priest to get me there. >>more
