Eucharistic Adoration


Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist.  The Eucharist is displayed in a special holder called a monstrance, and people come to pray and worship Jesus continually throughout the day and often the night.  Christ’s great love for us was shown when he was crucified on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and give us eternal life.  He loves us without limit, and offers Himself to us in the Holy sacrament of the Eucharist.  Can we not give Jesus a few minutes of love and adoration in return?

At St. Raphael the Archangel, we have Eucharistic Adoration every First Friday of the month.  This begins immediately after 8:00 am Mass and goes until 2:00 pm.  It is followed by Stations of the Cross or Benediction.  Subsequent Tuesdays of each month (without exposition) 7:00 am to 2:30 pm.

If you would like to become an adorer, please call the rectory at 314-352-8100 to sign up for an hour shift.
