Spiritual Growth

Eucharistic Adoration

Eucharistic adoration is an expression of our love for Jesus, who loves us so much that He never wants to leave us and so stays with us day and night in the Blessed Sacrament. Eucharistic Adoration is held every Thursday in the chapel at St. John following the 10:00 a.m. Mass until Benediction at 8:45 p.m. Volunteers are needed to sponsor an hour of prayer.
