Adoration Chapel

What is Eucharistic Adoration?
Eucharistic Adoration is private time spent in prayer before Jesus, really present in the Eucharist. A Consecrated Host is placed in a sacred vessel called a Monstrance. The Monstrance is then set in a special place for all to see, adore and worship. Jesus is truly present, body, blood and soul in the Holy Eucharist.

Where does Eucharistic Adoration take place?
Eucharistic Adoration takes place in the St Paul’s Chapel of Eucharistic Adoration. The Chapel is in the St Paul’s Church with access from the garden of remembrance through the steel gate and is open to all visitors from 9am in the Church and from 10am to 5pm in the Chapel (Coded access for registered adorers from 6am to 8pm in the Chapel).

Why is Eucharistic Adoration so important?
Eucharistic Adoration is your personal time with Jesus. It brings together the entire faith community of St Pauls parish into one prayer and unites our intentions, hurts, sorrows, joys, needs and concerns. Many miracles and blessings have been witnessed with Eucharistic Adoration and we give Jesus great honour and act with humility by acknowledging our need for, and dependence upon Him.  Jesus asks: “Could you not watch one hour with me” (Matthew 26:40)

What blessings can come from Adoration?
Some graces and blessings can include healing of troubled marriages, sicknesses, and diseases, return of fallen-away Catholics and conversions to the faith, employment found, increased vocations to the priesthood and religious life, incredible inner peace and much more!

Who can go to Adoration?
Everyone is welcome! You don’t have to be a Registered Adorer, but over time, you may feel that the Lord is calling you to sign up with a weekly commitment.

Can I bring my children?
Yes, absolutely. Adoration is for children and families, too. It is a special quiet place to be with Jesus. Short visits are sometimes the best way to introduce little ones to Jesus in Adoration.

What is the time requirement to be a Registered Adorer?
Registered Adorers make a commitment to be with our Lord at the same hour and day each week. It is ideal to have at least 2 adorers for each hour (to cover sick days or vacations) to make sure Jesus is never left alone. Substitutes are however available if a problem arises.

What do I do during Adoration?
Let the Holy Spirit guide you. You can call to mind your sins or sufferings and ask Jesus to have mercy on you. Great healing is available to those who come to Adoration. You can pray informal or formal prayers, journal, sit in silence, read a religious book, pray the rosary or Divine Mercy Chaplet, meditate on the Eucharist, or just bring your concerns to Jesus. The main point is general reverence towards the Holy Eucharist. Don’t worry about what you are to say, simply be in the presence of Jesus. This is your personal time with God. Listen to what Jesus is saying to you. After all, He is truly present in front of you. 

I invite everyone interested in being a part of supporting our Adoration Chapel to contact the Parish Office for more details.
