Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. The Eucharist is displayed in a monstrance, and people come to pray and worship Jesus continually throughout the day and through the night. Christ’s great love for us was shown when he was crucified on the cross to pay for our sins and give us eternal life. He loves us without limits, and offers Himself to us in the Holy sacrament of the Eucharist. In return, we give Jesus a few minutes of love and adoration in return.
Following Mass at 8 a.m. until 8:30 p.m.

Anyone who does eat my flesh and drink my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him at the Last Day.
What is Eucharistic Adoration?
Understood simply, Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honoring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. During Eucharistic Adoration, we remain "silent" in His Presence. As we sit in solitude, we become receptive to the Graces and Mercy of God. Our minds are silenced and become more fine-tuned to the Holy Spirit within. In its fullest essence ... Eucharistic Adoration is "God and Man reaching out for each other, at the same time!" At the moment of Consecration, during the Mass, the "gifts" of bread and wine are transformed (transubstantiated) into the actual Body and Blood of Christ, at the Altar. This means that they are not only spiritually transformed, but rather are actually (substantially) transformed into the Body and Blood of Christ.

We need your help!
1. We need people to sign up for these 1 hour time slots and not wait to be called.
2. Two people are needed to take over the responsibility of seeing that the hour slots are filled. We are in a time of crisis and if these needs are not met, St. Ignatius will not be able to continue with this ministry.
