Adoration in Lent

ADORATION IN LENT for a deepening of our relationship with God and a strengthening of our Parish


We will be holding an hour of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 9-10 am before Mass on weekdays (Tuesday to Saturday) during Lent. Eucharistic Adoration always requires at least two people to be present. If you can offer an hour, please call the office or e mail, by 20 February, giving the day(s) you prefer, and a telephone number or email address.


If Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is new to you, you just might find the following of some help: during this hour, the church will be open for anyone to drop by and spend some quiet time in prayer, or reflection. One of the great saints once said that this is a time ‘when I look at Him and he looks at me”. It is a time of stillness and oneness with God who loves us. Some people find it helpful to have some spiritual reading to start them off, or perhaps even some spiritual music on headphones to begin with – it’s a time for whatever works for you with God.

Some people can experience quite dramatic, spiritual changes in their lives, or in times of crisis. However, many people often experience a great sense of peace, joy and inspiration. Sitting in stillness before the Lord can help give us a greater clarity about our lives. According to the experience of many people, this time with the Lord can become a precious and strengthening time within our week. Give it a try...much to gain and nothing to lose!
