Eucharistic Adoration

Mission Statement

 Our mission is to provide an opportunity for our parishioners to spend committed time in prayer in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.
This vigil of prayer affirms our faith and gives witness to our belief that God is truly dwelling with His people.

Tuesdays from 11 am to 8:00 pm in the Chapel. 

Questions?  Contact Cheryl Thomas 659 – 3388 or salcrest7@gmail.com

There will be Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament monthly, at the end of the 4pm Vigil Mass for the Second Sunday of the month.
Do you have some time to spend with  Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament?

Following the prayer after Communion, Fr. Jim (or the visiting priest) will place the Blessed Sacrament (Host) in the Monstrance. The Blessed Sacrament is then incensed while the “O Salutaris / O Saving Victim” is sung. (Found inside the back cover of Breaking Bread.) Silent prayer then begins. (At this point, Fr. Jim leaves the Church. Please do not leave before Fr. Jim exits the Church. When you do leave, please leave silently.) At the end of the hour, one of our Eucharistic Ministers will repose the Blessed Sacrament from the Monstrance to the Tabernacle. No Benediction will take place as there is no Priest present.

Upcoming Saturday Eucharistic Adoration at St. Polycarp: March 9th, Saturday, April 13th, Saturday, May 11th, Saturday, June 8th, Saturday, July 13th, Saturday, August 10th
