"We will go throughout the city, we will pass among the people assailed by thousands of everyday problems, we will go to meet these brothers and sisters of ours and we will show the Sacrament of Christ's presence to all:
'Behold the bread of angels, the bread of pilgrims; the true bread of children.'
Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is simply our response to Jesus' love for us, whereby each of us is willing to spend a quiet holy hour of prayer in His Eucharistic Presence once a week on a regular basis that we may have perpetual (seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day) exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. Jesus is never left alone, and the chapel is always open for anyone to visit him.
Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration at St Helen's
Perpetual Adoration began at St. Helen's at 1:00p.m. on Sunday, June 17th, Father's Day. It was a beautiful day as Father Michael processed from the main church and carried the Blessed Sacrament to the Adoration Chapel with a large number of parishioners following. Once the Blessed Sacrament was positioned in the new tabernacle which was designed and built by Nick Brumder, parishioners filed into the chapel to welcome Our Lord into His new dwelling place.
Since then, a weekly average of 425 people have signed in and made a visit, some for a few minutes and some for a Holy Hour. Over 500 people have committed to spending an hour per week in Adoration.
