During Holidays when the Blessed Sacrament is reposed, the chapel
will be locked to protect it from vandalism.
Could you not spend one hour with me?
If anyone is interested in participating (current
participants included), weekly or every other week,

At St. Peter's Catholic Church, Jesus can be adored in the
most Blessed Sacrament 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in the parish chapel. Come
and spend time as frequently as you are able to in the presence of our Savior
and watch Him transform your life!
The Eucharist is a gift ~ a gift from God which we adore. We have had a
successful twenty-four hour Eucharistic Adoration Program; however, we are
facing hard times.
Hours for adoration are not filled during the wee hours of the night. We
could reduce our program to have adoration for only 18 hours - eliminating
the early morning hours, which we DO NOT want to do.
The Perpetual Adoration Program is in need of adorers for the following
- Monday morning - 2:00 am to 3:00 am
- Thursday morning - 1:00 am to 2:00 am
- Thursday morning - 2:00 am to 3:00 am
- Thursday morning - 3:00 am to 4:00 am
- Friday evening - 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm
- Saturday afternoon - 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm
- Saturday evening - 11:00 pm to 12:00 midnight
Our Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration program involves Catholics from around
the area who have volunteered to spend one hour per week (or more) in adoration
before the Blessed Sacrament. We are always looking for more people to join the
program as some people move from the area or are unable to continue their
commitments for other reasons.
The worship of the Eucharist outside of the Mass is of inestimable
value...It is the responsibility of pastors to encourage, also by their
personal witness, the practice of Eucharistic adoration and exposition of
the Blessed Sacrament in particular, as well as prayer of adoration before
Christ present under the Eucharistic species, ...
Of all devotions, that of adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the
greatest after the sacraments, the one dearest to God and the one most
helpful to us. ~ Ecclesia de Eucharistia, #25
My God, as I step into this Your holy place, please come to meet me.
Help me leave my doubts and wandering mind at Your door.
I want to pray to You with my whole heart, mind and soul for this hour.
You deserve no less from me.
Sweet Jesus, let Your suffering
and death and Your great love
hide from You the stains on my
soul so that I may be worthy to
be in Your presence.
As I kneel before You, help me remember Your pain so I will never want to sin;
to know Your love, so I can share that love with my neighbor.
Holy Spirit, enlighten me as I meditate on the body and blood of Christ, so I may know God's plan for me.
Fill me with Your courage, strength and grace so I will keep my commitment to visit here for my assigned hour.
Lord, please give me the courage that I need to bear the work and worries of my life and to fight the constant temptations.
Give me the strength that I need to continue my prayers, fasting, and sacrifices.
My mind and soul are willing, but my body is weak.
Grant me the grace that I need to find that perfect love for You for which I am always searching.
Oh Lord, I ask You to give all of us in perpetual Eucharistic adoration these gifts to help us until we can be here with You again.
Let the feeling of You grow stronger and nearer each time we come to this chapel, for You are whom we seek here, whom we need.
Diary of St. Faustina, #704 ~ "I spend every free moment
at the feet of the hidden God. He is my Master; I ask Him about everything;
I speak to Him about everything. Here I obtain strength and light; here I
learn everything; here I am given light on how to act toward my neighbor...I
have enclosed myself in the tabernacle together with Jesus."
