Christ the King Cathedral invites you to join “Adorers of the Blessed Sacrament,” a very special prayer group of the Spiritual Life Commission We formed on the Feast of Corpus Christi 2015. As you join this group, you receive a numbered membership card. You will enter your membership number on the log each time you spend time in prayer before the Real Presence of the Risen Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.
Visit and adore our Lord Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel… any time you want and as often as you want, even if only for a few minutes. Simply sign the notebook outside the chapel, your member number and the date and length of time you spent in adoration. Each week in the bulletin, we report the total number of hours spent in adoration, as well as the number of people who are in this prayer group.
For more information, please contact Barbara Schneweis at 438-0081.
In addition to this prayer group, you, your family, your ARISE group or other parish organization may also want to sign up for a regular hour to ensure that all hours of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration please contact Barbara Schneweis at 438-0081.
Adoration is open to anyone. Please maintain a disposition of silence and reverence in the chapel, recognizing that you are in the presence of Christ and that other adorers may also be present.
In our Adoration Chapel, a priest has taken a consecrated host, and placed it in a monstrance. (Monstrance comes from the Latin "monstrare" to show, to expose to view.) The monstrance at Christ the King Cathedral is attached to the door of the tabernacle (an ornate box which holds the monstrance and any consecrated hosts).
When you visit the chapel, be sure that the sacrament is exposed by opening the small door on the front of the tabernacle. During the time you are there, pray before the very presence of Our Lord, exposed in the monstrance. It is your time alone with Jesus to recite your favorite prayers, read the Bible, contemplate acts of faith, hope, charity, thanksgiving, reparation, pray a rosary or do whatever type of prayerful devotion that suits you before Our Lord. You can just sit and say nothing, simply keeping Him company, just as you would with a dear friend.
When you exit the chapel, if no one is remaining in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, you must repose the Sacred Host by closing the small door on the front of the tabernacle.
