The purpose of the Adoration Society at St. John the Evangelist is to encourage parishioners to spend one-half or one hour a week in Eucharistic Adoration. The Our Lady chapel is open for Eucharistic Adoration from immediately after Mass on Tuesday morning until 6:50 PM. Jesus invites everyone to spend one hour in Adoration with him. When you go before Him, He sees you; when you speak to Him, He hears you; when you confide something to Him, He welcomes into his Heart your every word; when you ask something of Him, He always hears your prayer. It is indeed a privilege to have the Eucharistic Adoration available to us.
We need a minimum of two people for each hour, and additional Adorers are needed. Pope Benedict XVI is a strong proponent of frequent Eucharistic Adoration. Let us all respond to Jesus’ admonition, “Could you not watch one hour with me?”
