“Adoration means entering the depths of our hearts in communion with the Lord, who makes Himself bodily present in the Eucharist.”
– Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI
Given the many challenges young people face as they navigate these important years, Holy Family Catholic Schools invites you to support your child(ren) and all students and teachers in a unique and fulfilling way: by praying for them during Eucharistic Adoration.
The Adoration Schedule
Eucharistic Adoration is offered in the Central Campus chapel from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each Tuesday that school is in session. If you are able to commit to a time, which will ensure we will be able to have Adoration on our campus every week, we invite you to sign up. If you are unable to sign up, you are always welcome to drop in to spend time in prayer when you are on campus.
How to Sign Up
- Holy Family parents can look for the monthly sign-up post in the Eucharistic Adoration Community group in ParentSquare.
- Friends and relatives may also join the Eucharistic Adoration Community Group to sign up for adoration and receive weekly reminders and updates from parent volunteer Adoration Coordinator Amy Freund.
What is Eucharistic Adoration?
Eucharistic Adoration is time spent in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament giving praise and thanks – in silence. During Adoration, the Eucharistic host is exposed and participants have a conversation with Jesus, pray the rosary or reflect on Scripture or other spiritual reading. As with any form of prayer, Adoration directs us inward, to the joy of a deeper relationship with God, and outward, to a more selfless love of others. Pope Francis said, "Jesus speaks in the silence of the mystery of the Eucharist."
