PERPETUAL ADORATION CHAPEL
“Could you not watch one hour with me?”
Can you help? We need a second person for each hour
At present, the adoration team coordinators are attempting to find two people to commit to each hour. When there are two people in the hour, they can back each other up if for some reason they cannot do their hour that week. It is an efficient way to make sure that someone is with Our Lord every hour.
The two people in the hour have each other’s phone number and they communicate when they are unable to be there so that the other person knows that they are responsible for the hour that week. If both are unable to go, they contact the coordinator for that hour who will then find a substitute.Coordinators:
Midnight - 6am: John& Lynne Heathe
6am - Noon: Chuck & Corinne Nunez
Noon – 6pm: Maire Murtagh
6pm – Midnight: William Christo
In 1993, Our Holy Father, Pope John Paul II expressed the desire to spread Perpetual Adoration, with permanent exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in all parishes and Christian communities throughout the world. In the great Jubilee Year of 2000, He called us to make the Eucharist more known, loved and adored than ever before. He said, "May our adoration never cease!" This is precisely what Perpetual Adoration is; adoration that never ceases.
Quotes from our Holy Father:
"The best, the surest and the most effective way of establishing everlasting peace on the face of the earth is through the Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament."
"In Eucharistic Adoration we meet the merciful love of God that passes through the Heart of Jesus Christ."
"Remaining in silence before the Blessed Sacrament, it is Christ totally and really present whom we discover, whom we adore and with whom we are in contact."
Since June, 1997, Jesus in the Sacred Host has been adored every hour of the night and day in the Adoration Chapel at St. Paul Parish. To make this happen, many people commit one hour of their week to be with Jesus. It is an hour for which they will be most grateful throughout eternity. Other people participate as substitutes, filling an hour just for that week for someone who is away or ill. Many others simply take some time out of their day to drop-in for a visit. All are important to the life of the Adoration Chapel!
There is always a need for new people to commit one hour of their week to be in the Perpetual Adoration Chapel. To join the team please contact Lynne Heathe by phone at 604-272-9880 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We often have extra hours to fill, perhaps you could help by signing up for a temporary vacant hour. You can see the needs of the chapel on the right hand bulletin board as you enter the church. Sign up sheets are available in the same location.
