Eucharistic Adoration Chapel at St. Martin’s
(Open to the public Monday – Friday during parish office business hours. Contact the office to sign up for weekly scheduled hour.)
The Eucharist is the heart and pinnacle of the Church’s life. The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship. Christ himself is truly present in the Sacrament; He is to be honored with the worship of adoration. His wonderful presence in our lives encourages us to be more and more open to His transformative power. Let us not refuse the time to go to meet Him in adoration, contemplation full of faith and open to making amends for the serious offenses and crimes in the world. Let our adoration never cease for even now it unites us to the Church in heaven, the Blessed Virgin Mary and all the saints. “To visit the Blessed Sacrament is a proof of gratitude, and expression of love and a duty of adoration toward Christ our Lord.” (Pope Paul VI)
At St. Martin’s we are blessed to have our Adoration Chapel and a growing ministry of Eucharistic Adoration. In our chapel you can sit before the Real Presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament to love and worship Him. The chapel is open to the public on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. However, we encourage you to sign up for your own weekly hour of prayer. For regular adorers, we provide 24-hour access. Our goal is to have seven days-a-week, 24-hours-a-day adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in our chapel. Those who participate in this ministry find prayers answered, “prayer lives” deepened, and a desire to spend time in prayer greatly increased. This is a form of prayer that transforms parishes and communities. We encourage you to spend an hour with Christ and receive His blessings! If you keep Him company for an hour now, He will keep you company for all eternity. Please call the parish office for more information, or if you wish a guided visit to the chapel.
