Eucharistic Adoration is an extension of the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament which occurs in every Mass. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament flows from the sacrifice of the Mass and serves to deepen our desire to be in close to Christ.
“Visiting the Blessed Sacrament gives me peace. It is the place and time wherein I truly feel the presence of God. When I silence my mind and focus only on Who is before me, nothing matters anymore except God and my relationship with Him as a son. Come as you are. If you are happy, pray happy. If you are sad, then pray sad. If you are angry, then pray angry. There is nothing that we can hide from God!” ~Leo Vitangcol
How to approach adoration
- Slowly. Like any other new endeavor, taking it slowly may be best. Plan to start with 5-10 minutes of your time and allow yourself to get used to the experience of sitting in silence, letting go of all the thoughts racing through your mind. Then increase the amount of time spent on focusing quietly on Jesus.
- Bring Scripture. Have a bible or a favorite book of spiritual reading with you and take time to consider how God may be speaking to you in the passages.
- Pray the Rosary. The repetition in the Rosary helps lead us into restful and contemplative prayer. The repetition of the words helps us to enter into the silence of our hearts, where Christ's spirit dwells.
- Silently. With all the noise of our daily lives, sitting in silence can be strange and uncomfortable. It is only in silence that we hear the voice of God. Psalm 46:10, Lamentations 3:26, Psalm 62:5
Holy hours are a devotional tradition of spending an hour in Eucharistic Adoration in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. St. Dominic Catholic Parish offers a Holy Hour for Life during the month of October to focus our prayer to Jesus on helping us understand, value, and become engaged with building a culture that cherishes every human life from conception to natural death.

"The rosary is the book of the blind, where souls see and there enact the greatest drama of love the world has ever known; it is the book of the simple, which initiates them into mysteries and knowledge more satisfying than the education of other men; it is the book of the aged, whose eyes close upon the shadow of this world, and open on the substance of the next. The power of the rosary is beyond description." ~Archbishop Fulton Sheen
Stations of the Cross
Fridays in Lent at 6:30 PM
The Stations of the Cross is a Lenten devotion that places our minds and hearts on Jesus’ passion and death. At each station, we reflect prayerfully upon Jesus’ suffering, death, and resurrection, and on Christ’s love for us.
The Stations of the Cross began as a practice of pilgrims to Jerusalem who would walk the final journey of Jesus Christ to Calvary. Later, for those who wanted to experience the same path, but could not make the trip to Jerusalem, a practice developed that became the fourteen stations we know today.
