Eucharistic Adoration

Holy Hour & Adoration at SJA

SJA offers a Holy Hour at 7 pm, monthly, on the Thursday preceding First Friday. One of our Deacons will lead us in the Rite of Eucharistic Exposition and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
 
Following the Holy Hour, Adoration will continue in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel until 8:00 am, First Friday morning. Parishioners are encouraged to partake in this beautiful prayer opportunity; a time to be refreshed by our Lord! To commit to a particular monthly hour of Adoration contact Paulina Rudmann at 440-543-2744 or 440-724-1468.

What is a Holy Hour & Eucharistic Adoration?

The U.S. Conference of Bishops explains that, "Holy hours are the Roman Catholic devotional tradition of spending an hour in Eucharistic Adoration in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament." Basic elements of a Holy Hour led by a priest or deacon include: Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament (host) in a monstrance on the altar, a gospel reading and homily, adoration (silent time for reflection), hymns, prayers, incensation of the altar, and Reposition (returning the Blessed Sacrament to the tabernacle).
 
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is a form of prayer that began centuries ago. The word adoration means “to pay honour or homage to someone or something.” The same Jesus, Whom we receive in the Eucharist at Mass is Who we worship in Adoration. Adoration is a time to sit face to face with Jesus to deepen and strengthen your relationship with Him.

“Adoration means entering the depths of our hearts in communion with  the Lord, Who makes Himself bodily present in the Eucharist. In the monstrance, He always entrusts Himself to us and asks us to be united with His presence with His risen body.” – Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI
