Why Adoration?

“In a world where there is so much noise, so much bewilderment, there is a need for silent adoration of Jesus concealed in the Host. Be assiduous in the prayer of adoration and teach it to the faithful. It is a source of comfort and light, particularly to those who are suffering.” – Pope Benedict XVI

“Of all devotions, that of adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the greatest after the sacraments, the one dearest to God and the one most helpful to us.” – St. Alphonsus Liguori

Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament flows from the Sacrifice of the Mass and serves to deepen our hunger for Communion with Christ and the rest of the Church.

St. Philomena Adoration Chapel

Through the generous faith of our people, we have opened St. Philomena Adoration Chapel, the upstairs chapel located in our Newman Hall! The mission of this chapel is to build enough hours of Adoration to have Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
