Adoration

40 Hour Weekly Adoration

The Cathedral of Saint John hosts 40 hours of Eucharistic Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the Chapel of the Beloved Disciple.  Adoration begins with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament at 6:00pm on Wednesday and ends with Reposition at 10:00am on Friday. Mass is also offered at 12:05pm Monday- Friday. We’re asking you and a significant other, friend or family member to commit to one hour or split the hour. Plan a date of it - adoration and coffee, adoration and lunch or adoration and dinner.  Once your hour is complete, the next person for that reserved time will be there to take your place.

To receive your individualized family Adoration code, please call the church office secretary, Karen at 337.232.1322.  This code is the ONLY way to enter the adoration chapel and was set to ensure your safety and the safety of those with you.  

Note: You are signing up for WEEKLY adoration, the dates will be updated weekly and you will receive an email reminder 2 days before your designated date. Please contact your hourly group members weekly to ensure someone can be there. If you nor any one else in your group are unable to make your committed hour, please find your replacement in plenty of time (kindly 24 hours in advance) so the person before you is not impacted. If you would like to split the hour in 30 minute increments, please find a friend to split it with you and put it in the notes below.

Please select your date(s) ASAP ...St John the Evangelist needs you!  Thank you for your continued YES to actively participate in adoration at the Chapel of the Most Beloved Disciple. Enjoy peace and tranquility in the presence of Jesus. Please share this opportunity with your family and friends.

“The holy hour in our modern rat race is necessary for authentic prayer. Our world is one of speed in which intensity of movement is a substitute for lack of purpose; where noise is invoked to drown out the whisperings of conscience; where talk, talk, talk gives the impression that we are doing something when really we are not; where activity kills self-knowledge won by contemplation…” 

- Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

"The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time that 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 an everlasting peace on earth."

- Mother Teresa of Calcutta

FAQs

Where do we go?

The Chapel of the Most Beloved Disciple is located thru the side entrance of L'Eveche (Father's House). You will see the breezeway/parking area for the priests.  There is an arbor/archway with flowers/ greenery that you will pass under. The door you will enter is passcode protected behind L'Eveche to your LEFT. You will need a family PASSCODE as given from the church prior to attending adoration.  This is a family specific code that you will use each time.   To receive your individualized family Adoration code, please call the church office secretary, Karen at 337.232.1322.  This code is the ONLY way to enter the adoration chapel and was set to ensure your safety and the safety of those with you.  Once entered, you will head right down the long hallway toward the connecting Cathedral Center. (If you take a left you will enter Fathers house. ) You will reach a "T" and need to go right once more at this split. The Adoration Chapel is the next opening on your left. * Remember to silence your cell phone and bring along any books/reading or prayer materials you might like as well as a rosary.  Enjoy your quiet time with Jesus.

What is Adoration?

Adoration is an opportunity for us to pray before the Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. The Eucharistic host is placed in a “monstrance” (meaning “to show”), which displays the Eucharist so we can see Him clearly. Then we pray. We talk, we listen. You don’t have to worry if you’re doing it right or not. Just show up and remain reverent in His presence. This is an opportunity for you to spend time in the direct, physical presence of God. Our greatest prayer – the Mass – is the prayer of the community – God and us. Adoration is personal, individual prayer – God and me.

Perpetual Adoration calls for at least one person to be present with the Blessed Sacrament at all times 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.  Time spent in Adoration is very family friendly. Children at a very young age (those of an age who can maintain a reverent silence) can begin to experience the Graces and power of this form of prayer. Perpetual Adoration is for everyone!

40 Hour Adoration is offered over a 40 hour time frame weekly. 

Why should we do it? What are the benefits?

People devoted to Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament have claimed the benefits and grace of this prayer practice for centuries. People who take time each day in what Catholic evangelist Matthew Kelly calls the “classroom of silence,” lead healthier spiritual lives. Parishes who have committed to Perpetual Adoration have reported numerous blessings of spiritual growth and depth in their members, vocations to the priesthood and religious life, increased commitment to the lifestyle of stewardship, increased parish resources, and many other graces. Through Adoration, the Holy Spirit will continue to work thru each of us.

Adoration is a specific and powerful type of prayer, in which the Blessed Sacrament is exposed. It has been shown time after time that this special prayer brings special grace to the people and places participating in it. Thank you for sharing in that grace.
