Eucharistic Adoration

"Could you not watch one hour with Me?"

What is Eucharistic Adoration?

Understood simply, Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honouring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. In a deeper sense, it involves "the contemplation of the Mystery of Christ truly present before us".

During Eucharistic Adoration, we "watch and wait", we remain "silent" in His Presence and open ourselves to His Graces which flow from the Eucharist ... By worshiping the Eucharistic Jesus, we become what God wants us to be! Like a magnet, The Lord draws us to Himself and gently transforms us.

In its fullest essence ... Eucharistic Adoration is "God and Man reaching out for each other, at the same time!"

Christ’s great love for us was shown when he was crucified on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and give us eternal life. He loves us without limit, and offers Himself to us in the Holy sacrament of the Eucharist. Can we not give Jesus a few minutes of love and adoration in return?

Adoration is held at St. Mary Church in Paxton on the following days:

Monday 9:00 am 9:00 pm
Tuesday 9:00 am 9:00 pm
Wednesday 10:00 am 7:00 pm
Thursday 3:00 pm 10:00 pm

During these times, the Blessed Sacrament is exposed and therefore can not be left alone so regularly scheduled adorers are always with our Lord.   Anyone is invited to stop in and also pray or visit our Lord during these hours as the doors are left open. 

Regular adorers cover a 1-hour time period.  You choose the length of your commitment. If you cannot commitment to a regular time slot you can choose to be on a substitute list where you would be called only on an as-needed basis. 

We hope the Holy Spirit will bless you and guide you to come closer to our Lord through our Adoration Program
