Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration
In the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus asks Peter, James and John "Could you not spend one hour with me?" Jesus speaks to us every day. I know you are very busy - are you too busy for Jesus? He has given you 168 hours each week; could you not spend one hour with Him? Check below to see where there is a need for adorers.

When you ask yourself, should I become an Adorer in the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel?  Let the words of St. Teresa of Lisieux help in your decision:
I Have Only Today
My life is an instant, an hour which passes by;
My life is a moment which I have no power to stay
You know, O my God,
That to love you here on earth—
I have only today.

Twelve Biblical Reasons For Wanting To Spend One Hour With Jesus In The Blessed Sacrament

1. He is really there!  "I myself am the living bread come down from heaven." (Jn 6:35)

2. Day and night Jesus dwells in the Blessed Sacrament because of his Infinite love for you!  "Behold I will be with you always even to the end of the world," because "I have loved you with an everlasting love, and constant is my affection for you." (Mt 28:20; Jer 31:3)

3. The specific way that Jesus asks you to love him in return is to spend one quiet hour with him in the Blessed Sacrament.  "Where your treasure is, there is your heart...." "Could you not watch one hour with me?" (Mt 6:21; 26:40)

4. When you look upon the Sacred Host, you look upon Jesus, the Son of God.  "Indeed, this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks upon the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life. Him I will raise up on the last day." (Jn 6:40)

5. Each moment that you spend in His Eucharistic Presence will increase his divine life within you and deepen your personal relationship and friendship with him.  "I have come that you may have life, and have it more abundantly." "I am the vine and you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him shall bear much fruit because without me, you can do nothing." (Jn 15:5)

6. Each hour you spend with Jesus will deepen his divine peace in your heart.  "Come to me all of you who are weary and find life burdensome and I will refresh you..." "Cast all of you anxieties upon the one who cares for you..." "My Peace is My Gift to you." (Mt 11:28; Pt 5:7; Jn 14:17)

7. Jesus will give you all the graces you need to be happy!  "The Lamb on the throne will shepherd them. He will lead them to the springs of life-giving water." (Rev 7:17)

8. Jesus is infinitely deserving of our unceasing thanksgiving and adoration for all he has done for our salvation.  "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive honor, glory and praise." (Rev. 5:12)

9. For peace in our country!  "When my people humble themselves and seek my presence... I will revive their land." (2Chr 7:14)

10. Each hour you spend with Jesus on earth will leave your soul everlastingly more beautiful and glorious in heaven!  "They who humble themselves shall be exalted...." "All of us, gazing on the Lord’s glory with unveiled faces, are being transformed from glory to glory into his very image." (Lk 18:14; 2Cor 3:18)

11. Jesus will bless you, your family and the whole world for this hour of faith you spend with Him in the Blessed Sacrament.  "Blessed are they who do not see and yet believe..." "Faith can move mountains..." " What is needed is trust... " "Behold I come to make all things new." (Jn 20:29; Mk 11:23; Mk 5:36; Rev 21:5)

12. Each moment you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament brings joy, pleasure, and delight to his Sacred Heart!  "My joy, my pleasure, my delight is to be with you." (Prov 8:31)

“If you look within, you will be depressed.

If you look about , you will be distressed.

So look at Jesus and be at rest.”

~Corrie Ten Boom

Come to our Adoration Chapel.  Look at Jesus and be at rest.

The Origin of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration at Saint Michael Church

In 1997 a couple originally from New York put forth the idea of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration to the Marian Movement for Priests Cenacle.  It was met with skepticism, since it was difficult at that time to cover exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on Mondays from after the 8 am Mass until 7 pm.

After three years of petitions at daily Mass and prayers by the Marian Movement for Priests Cenacle group, Msgr. Duffy granted permission for Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration.

The living quarters for the founding priest in the original church was converted into an Adoration Chapel.  On December 8, 2000, Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration was born and on August 18, 2012, the Chapel was relocated in our new church.

On December 8, 2017 we will celebrate our 17th anniversary of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration at Saint Michael Parish!
