Adoration is a form of worship and devotion to Jesus Christ, present in the consecrated host. Anytime we enter a Chapel where the Eucharist is present (whether reposed in the tabernacle or exposed on the Altar) we can adore our Lord. Christians around the world have worshiped and prayed in this way for at least 750 years.
The Chapel at St. Mary's is open for prayer 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by entering through the side door (we lock the front door outside of normal Mass hours). The Eucharist is exposed from 4-5 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On Wednesdays, 9 am – 5 pm and on 8 am – 8 45 am on Saturdays.
Whenever the Eucharist is exposed, it is necessary to have at least one person present (though two is prefereable). If you would like to commit to a weekly hour of Adoration on Wednesdays, please sign up using the form below! Knowing that schedules change every semester, you will be able to sign up for a new time in the Spring.
If you are scheduled, be sure to be faithful to your times or let someone know in the office (936-564-0661) so that we can fill in.
