Eucharistic Adoration

Without silence, God disappears in the noise. And this noise becomes all the more obsessive because God is absent. Unless the world rediscovers silence, it is lost. The earth then rushes into nothingness.

Cardinal Sarah

Our Lady of Mercy has Eucharistic Adoration Monday through Friday from 8:30AM to 10PM in the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel.

On Wednesdays during the 12PM Mass, there will be no Eucharistic Adoration, it will resume immediately after the Mass.  During MAGNIFY typically at the last Wednesday of the month from 7PM to 8:30PM, Adoration will be inside the church.

Several Things To Keep In Mind While Adoring Jesus at the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel

  • Silent Adoration Chapel. This will be a silent space.  Echoing Cardinal Robert Sarah’s words, “Christ lived for thirty years in silence. Then, during His public life, He withdrew to the desert to listen to and speak with His Father. The world vitally needs those who go off into the desert because God speaks in silence.”
    Thank you for being what the world vitally needs as “those who go off into the desert” when you spend time with Jesus at the chapel.
  • Respecting Sacred Spaces. Please refrain from touching the statues or placing items on them or the wooden ledge (items such as flower arrangements, rosaries, mementos, gifts, etc.).
  • Please Sign-In Every Time You Visit Jesus. Familiarize yourself with the sign-in process by watching the tutorial video. Father Michael emphasizes the importance of signing in for all committed adorers and visitors, as it helps us maintain a record of attendance and ensure a smooth operation of the chapel, for we cannot leave Jesus alone in the chapel. A separate tutorial video is sent to adorers who have made a weekly commitment to adore Jesus.
  • Adoration Hours. Join us Monday through Friday, following the 8am Mass until 10pm, with exceptions on Wednesdays during the 12pm Mass, adoration resumes immediately after the 12pm Mass.  On Wednesday evenings during MAGNIFY from 7pm to 8:30pm, adoration will take place inside the church.

Bringing Our Difficulties to the Lord at
the New Adoration Chapel

Fr Michael speaks from his own experience of bringing his trials to Jesus during adoration which can lead to profound solace and healing. His prayer is that you find comfort in laying your burdens before the Lord in the sacred sanctuary of our new Adoration Chapel.

Adoration Chapel Dedication

Bishop Ronald Hicks dedicates the new adoration chapel on Sunday, February 11, 2024, with Fr. Michael Kearney, our pastor, Fr. Frank Pusateri, our parochial vicar, clergy, staff, and congregation.
O Jesus in the Eucharist, Prince of Peace, Come reign in us!

St. John Paul II said, “I encourage Christians regularly to visit Christ present in the Blessed Sacrament, for we are all called to abide in the presence of God.”

You see, the Lord is pursuing us at every moment of every single day. He wants us to ‘waste’ time with Him before the Blessed Sacrament.

Interested in offering up a Eucharistic Holy Hour? Or wondering on what to do in the silence before the Blessed Sacrament?  A couple suggestions are:

  • Read the Bible
  • Lectio Divina
  • Contemplate the mysteries of the Rosary
  • Just sit in silence and spend time with Him.  Encounter Jesus in a special way that He is personally inviting you to come and share your heart with Him.

The Gift of the Eucharist and Eucharistic Reverence

Thank you for your interest in Eucharistic Adoration at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church. Anyone is welcome to come and pray in front of the Blessed Sacrament during the Exposition of the Holy Eucharist.
We encourage you to become a part of our Adoration Ministry, which is a wonderful opportunity to spend time with our Lord Jesus regularly through the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and to join our community in prayer and adoration.

We encourage you to commit to a weekly Holy Hour of Eucharistic Adoration. Your commitment to a dedicated weekly Holy Hour allows us to grow our community of Adorers as the parish grows, as well as, helps us prepare to offer more adoration opportunities for special events throughout the year.

An Adorer at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church represents our parish community in adoration and prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. Thus, it is not only a time to pray for yourself and your own family and friends but it is also a time to pray for the entire parish family, which provides great consolation to the parish by knowing that someone is praying for them continuously.

We encourage each adorer to keep these intentions in mind:

  1. The material and spiritual welfare of the universal Church; and in particular, those of the parishioners of Our Lady of Mercy.
  2. Vocations to the priesthood and religious life.
  3. The sanctity of all life, from conception to natural end.
  4. Your own personal intentions.

If you cannot commit to a weekly Holy Hour, please consider joining our Adoration Ministry Sub team and you can help us fill a weekly Adorer’s spot when he or she cannot attend.
