Why Should I Spent an Hour in Adortion?

Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta said, "The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth. Each moment that you spend with Jesus will deepen your union with Him and make your soul everlastingly more glorious and beautiful in Heaven, and will help bring about everlasting peace on earth."

Frequently Asked Questions About 40 Hours

Is this like the Adoration we do on First Fridays?

It’s exactly like that! Come to pray, just as we do on First Fridays, in the days leading up to Saint Philip’s Feast day!

Why is it called 40 Hours?

Traditionally, the Parish would enjoy 40 Hours of Adoration over several days. Parishes still call the Devotion “40 Hours”, even if you do not have exactly 40 hours.

I have never prayed in Adoration before. What do I do?

The simple answer is just talk to Jesus! Spend some time in quiet prayer while offering to your God what is on your mind and heart. We also will have some handy guides available to help you pray.

I like to read. Can I read during Adoration?

If you would like! We will have plenty of reading material you can borrow as you pray.
