Adoration Guardians

Adoration Guardians

‘Let us bow down in worship; let us kneel before the Lord who made us.’ Psalm 95:6

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION

St. Francis invites each of us to be generous and spend time with Jesus Christ in Adoration of the Most Holy Eucharist as a Guardian. Feel Jesus’ love and mercy present in the Holy Eucharist and allow him to heal and renew your soul.

Adoration, each Thursday from 9:30am – 7:00pm

What is Adoration?

Adoration is adoring and honoring the presence of Christ in the Eucharist. The Blessed Sacrament is held within a holder called a monstrance. During this time with Jesus, recite your favorite prayers, read the bible, pray a rosary, or other types of prayerful devotions. You can talk to God or sit in total stillness. All are invited for as much time as you wish to spend.

Becoming an Adoration Guardian

Everyone is invited to come visit, worship, and adore the Blessed Sacrament. To make sure adoration can safely take place, at least one person, but preferably two, is with our Lord at all times. These guardians make it possible for all parishioners to experience the blessings of Eucharistic adoration.

Guardians can commit to spending time in adoration a specific hour each Thursday.  Also, Adoration guardian substitutes fill in for guardians or during open adoration hours.

Do you ever stop to listen to yourself breathe?

It may sound like a crazy question in today’s nonstop, plugged-in reality. But many parishioners come and sit in the church, and simply breathe. It may be five minutes; it may be an hour.

All ages and time commitments are welcome to participate.
