SVDP Adoration Information

“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… The Holy Hour means giving up a golf game or a cocktail party or a nap. Sometimes it is hard.” But it is worth it!   –Archbishop Fulton Sheen

“If I could prescribe just one remedy for all the ills of the modern world, I would prescribe silence. For even if the word of God were proclaimed, no one would hear it; there is too much noise. Therefore, create silence.”   – Soren Kierkegaard

Could you not keep watch with me one hour?”   – Jesus (Matthew 26:40)

There are few ways to encounter Jesus more powerfully and to hear His invitation to come and follow as His disciple than time before the Blessed Sacrament; for Jesus is truly present in a unique way in the Eucharist. Just as we love to waste time with those we love so Jesus loves to waste time with us.

Weekly 24 Hour Adoration begins every Thursday at 5pm and runs continuously through the night ending Friday at 5:15pm with Benediction and 5:30pm Mass.
