“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.

Eucharistic Adoration is the practice of praying before Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament exposed in a monstrance on an altar. In the gospel, Jesus asked his disciples to spend one hour with him. In Eucharistic Adoration, we can also spend an hour with Jesus.

Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration began in the Diocese of Christchurch on Sunday June 30th, 2013.

Perpetual Adoration is held at the St Gregory’s Chapel in Bishopdale in the Catholic Parish of Papanui.
