Adoration

Eucharistic Adoration

DSC_6423.jpg

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is a powerful opportunity for spiritual growth. The MHT Adoration Chapel is open 5:00 AM to 10:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Jesus invites us to come and pray, meditate, journal, read. Thank him, ask him or just gaze upon him truly present in the Eucharist. Come for a few minutes or register for a regular hour.

We need at least two committed adorers for each hour to insure that there will always be at least one adorer present. We cannot leave the Blessed Sacrament alone. We encourage you to prayerfully consider a weekly commitment - taking the first step is often the hardest.

Register at adorationpro.org/grace by picking any hour that fits your schedule.

If you are able and willing to commit to a regular hour go to to signup. Pick any hour but we especially need:

Hours Most Needed

Mondays, 10:00 AM
Tuesdays, 10:00 AM
Wednesdays, 7:00 AM; 1:00 and 3:00 PM
Fridays, 10:00 AM; 3:00 and 5:00 PM

Life is a wonderful journey. Feeling lost or confused? Turn to Jesus and ask him to guide and comfort you.

What are you bringing to the manger?

In this season of gift giving, we know that nothing can equal the greatest gift of all – the gift of Jesus!

Just as the Magi brought gifts to the Manger of the Child, we invite you to bring your gifts of gratitude to the manger as well. Throughout Advent you have the opportunity to express your gratitude and bring your gift to the manger. You will find patterns to make a gift box in the Commons by the manger or click here to download one to print at home. Write your gratitude prayer, place it in the box and bring your gift box to the manger as an offering of thanks and love to the Christ Child. Let’s fill the manger with our presents of gratitude!

These gifts of prayers and thanksgiving will remain in our baptistery throughout Christmastide.


Let us join together this Season of Advent and Christmas as we prepare for and celebrate the birth of our Lord.
