Are things in your life getting on top of you? Is nobody listening? Who will look after your daily worries?
Why not spend some time in Eucharistic Adoration?
Jesus welcomes everybody to spend some quiet time with him whenever you want.
It is up to you. You can spend a few minutes in prayer, silence, or reading in the company of the Lord. The Adoration Chapel is open to ALL parishioners. Why not call in for a few minutes, at any time? Great blessings await you there.
The Adoration chapel is open 10.00 a.m. – 10.00 p.m. each day.
Alternatively you can attend at the same time each week. If 12.00 noon to 1.00 p.m. or maybe 5.00 p.m. – 6.00 p.m. suits you this would be wonderful.
We need people to cover those particular hours urgently.

Who Can Doubt The Real Presence?
On the evening of the last day of his October 1995
visit to the United States, Pope John Paul II was scheduled to greet the seminarians at St. Mary’s Seminary
in Baltimore. It had been a very full day, beginning with
Mass at the Oriole Park in Camden Yards, followed by a
parade through the downtown streets, a visit to the Basilica
of the Assumption, the first cathedral in the country, lunch
at a local soup kitchen, run by the Catholic Charities, a
prayer service at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in the
North Baltimore area, and finally a quick stop at St. Mary’s
The schedule was tight so the plan was to simply
greet the seminarians while they stood outside on the steps.
But Pope John Paul II made his way through their ranks and into the building. His plan was first to make a visit to the
Blessed Sacrament. When his wishes were made known, security personnel quickly flew into action ahead of the Pope. Their activities included a sweep of the building, paying close attention to the chapel where Pope John Paul II would
For this purpose, highly trained dogs were used to detect
any persons who might be present. The dogs are trained to
locate living people in collapsed buildings after earthquakes
and other disasters. These intelligent and eager canines went
through their rounds in the halls, offices and classrooms quickly, and were then sent into the chapel. They went up and down the aisles and past the pews, and finally into the side chapel where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved.
Upon reaching the tabernacle, the dogs sniffed and
whined and pointed, refusing to leave; they were convinced that they discovered someone there and firmly remained, their attention riveted to the tabernacle, until called out by the
We Catholics know they were right; they found a
REAL LIVING PERSON in the tabernacle!
JESUS IN ADORATION CHANGED MY FAMILY
I am a Roman Catholic, was brought up a Roman Catholic, went to Mass, always gave up—or should I say, tried to give up something for lent‑‑‑but that was it. Until one day, nearly ten years ago, I met this inspiring lady in her eighties. I never thought it was by accident, as she changed me and my life forever. She told me about Jesus in Adoration. I never knew, nor was ever told, that in Adoration; Jesus was alive, waiting there for me. She explained to me that in Adoration, I would see a round white Host, but that that was Jesus. I thought, how can that be Jesus, it was very hard to take in.
Like any other family, I had so many problems and stresses in my family and life, with drink, drugs, broken marriages, I could go on. My children were lost in this world and all the things that wanted to destroy them, they were attracted to. Things that was bad for their minds and souls. I always prayed for my family in the only way I knew, but when I met my elderly lady she was to change my life forever. I did everything she told me. I went to Adoration and sat thee at first and looked at a White Host and thought, am I to really believe that this white host is Jesus, looking at me? I kept going and the first thing I noticed was this feeling of peace would come over me. Then I became happy to just sit and look and say nothing. After a while, I then asked the Lord to help me believe and know that it was truly Him. The more I went, the more I believed. I prayed for my children, for family and others. As my children were out of control, Jesus, in Adoration became my sanity, my peace, my comfort. Actually, I shouldn’t say children, my teenager and adult children. The drinking and drug-taking continued. I was going to Adoration regularly now and loving every minute. I would go in, kneel down or sit, close my eyes and in my mind’s eye I would see Jesus, there fore me. I asked Him and begged Him many times through tears to help my children. There were times I was under so much mental pressure that I felt my life was out of control. I brought each one my children to Jesus, in Adoration, as King, begging and pleading with Him to change them. I continued to go to Jesus, He was what I needed to hold me together and make me and my husband strong to get through these terrible difficult times. The drinking and drug-taking continued, but then I couldn’t see, that Jesus was working away changing my children, little by little, but it was only as time went on, I could look back and see this. I put all my trust in Him, I was left with no other option, but to trust Him and believe, truly believe, that he would lead my children in the right direction.
The prayers and begging continued and the changes happened. I gave them to Jesus and said they are your children too. I can’t do any more with them. You take them and change them for me. I kept going to Adoration. I was getting such beautiful peace in my mind and soul through all this turmoil. My own mind was being kept intact, that was often so fragile. Jesus took my children and worked to change them and gave me back the most loving sons, good husband, good father and wonderful providers. He gave me back the most wonderful beautiful daughter, who could only have come from Heaven. She is my best friend and could only be a gift from God. She now has found Jesus in Adoration and Adores and loves Him.
Life and my family are not perfect and never will be, there is always one who has to be prayed for and always will. My biggest prayer now, is the gift of faith for my children and their families, that they will come to know and truly believer that Jesus is their best friend in the world, their life in this world is so short, and can be so much easier, if they walk hand in hand with Jesus.
Please bring your family worries and problems to Jesus in Adoration. You’ve nothing to loose. Give one hour a week. Sit back and wait for the miracles to happen. I promise they will. He waits for you and cares for you like no one ever could or will in this world. May God bless me, my family and every family in the whole world. Thank you Jesus in the most Blessed Sacrament for all the love and kindness you have shown me and my family and for giving me the strength and courage to lift up my cross and carry it, which feels so much lighter with you by my side. And, I thank you for my elderly lady I met, who became my best and dearest friend.
God Bless. A thankful Adorer. Amen
