Eucharistic Adoration

On the first Monday of every month students in grades 1 – 8 attend Eucharistic Adoration in the Mission Basilica for fifteen to twenty minutes.  This is a time of quiet prayer and reflection for the students.

Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist.  In the many Churches that have this adoration, the Eucharist is displayed in a special holder called a monstrance, and people come to pray and worship Jesus continually throughout the day and often the night.  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 admiration in return?
