“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.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is held in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel of St Mary’s Pro-Cathedral every weekday between 11.00am and 12 midday.
Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration began in the Diocese of Christchurch on Sunday June 30th, 2013.
Perpetual Adoration is also held at the St Gregory’s Chapel in Bishopdale in the Catholic Parish of Christchurch North seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
