Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Matt 11:28)

We abide in Jesus by spending time with Him in adoration.

Jesus invites us into a real relationship with the living God. In adoration we sit in His presence and share with him our joys and sorrows, our successes and failures, our triumphs and tragedies, our holiness and our sinfulness.  And in the quiet, we listen. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is the name for prayer when the Eucharist (bread that has been consecrated into the Body and Blood of Jesus) is visible.  The Eucharist is placed in a monstrance (display stand) to be visible for prayer.  If that is confusing or strange to you, learn a little more about it here.

We are fortunate in our parishes to have a beautiful adoration chapel, the oratory of Divine Mercy, on the Immaculate Heart of Mary campus (2401 N. Broad) to adore Jesus in the Eucharist.

We also offer Eucharistic adoration 8:30-4pm on Wednesdays at St. Patrick and during our monthly parish-wide Holy Hours.
