Eucharistic Adoration is held every Wednesday from 8:30 AM until 4:00 PM.
You are welcome to stop in anytime, but we are especially looking for people to commit to a particular hour/half hour of their choosing. Give the Lord an hour a week, or an hour a month. We are also looking for substitutes: those willing to be called when one of the regulars is unavailable.
For more information, or to sign up, please look for the sign-up sheet at the back of the churches or call Isabella McGuire 732 341-2496.

It begins when the Priest or Deacon removes the sacred host from the tabernacle and places it on the altar for adoration. During this time parishioners may come at any time (for any length of time) to pray or meditate in the presence of our Lord. At 4pm, Adoration concludes and Benediction takes place and the Host is placed back into the tabernacle. Because we believe in the living presence of Jesus in the consecrated Host, the Blessed Sacrament should not be left unattended at any time. We ask that worshipers sign in while visiting the Blessed Sacrament so we are able to monitor the number of people in attendance and so that we know whether the Blessed Sacrament was left alone. Please feel free to use the booklets provided to guide your prayer and meditation if you need it.
