Adoration Chapel Information & Guidelines

We are pleased to welcome you to the ‘Son of Mary’ Adoration Chapel.

Catholics for many centuries have engaged in Eucharistic adoration, during which they spend time in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, the Real Presence of Jesus Christ. The Adoration Chapel allows you to pray before Jesus in a quiet atmosphere, facilitating contemplative prayer.

“The Church and the world have great need of Eucharistic adoration. Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration and contemplation full of faith. And let us be ready to make reparation for the great faults and crimes of the world. May our adoration never cease.” – Saint Pope John Paul II, Dominicae Canae


Weekday Adoration hours correspond with our Parish Center hours, Monday – Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm
The Adoration Chapel is closed on the weekends (Saturday & Sunday)

These hours align to times outside of our usual Mass times. Please only enter at these times. Campus safety continues to be an ongoing concern, and these hours allow us to maintain a safe, clean Chapel. In addition, these times do not interfere with Mass.

Additionally, there are Adoration opportunities, Holy Hours, in the Church on some Tuesday evenings for those desiring later hours for Adoration and worship. See the bulletin or our website for the specific dates.

Thank you for your love and devotional prayer for our Risen Lord Jesus Christ, Sacramentally present in the Eucharist. We are truly blessed to have the Son of Mary Eucharistic Adoration Chapel at St. Mary’s.
