Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration (PEA)

What is Eucharistic Adoration?

In the Mass, bread and wine are consecrated and become the body and blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ. When Mass has ended, the remaining consecrated hosts are taken to our chapel and placed in the tabernacle[i]. When we receive Jesus in Holy Communion, as well as when we visit Him in the chapel, Jesus is present, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.

Adoration begins Sunday evening at 8:00 PM and ends on Saturday at 12:00 PM; however there is no Adoration during Mass.

On Thursday between the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM, the Eucharist is exposed above the tabernacle in the monstrance[ii].
