Good resource - find Eucharistic Adoration anywhere in USA

March 3, 2010

My sweet, beautiful, wonderful wife found a good resource on the Intarwebs for Eucharistic Adoration.  You know, that thing Richard McBrien says is backwards, medieval, and superstitious, where we worship Christ in our midst through the Blessed Sacrament.   Eucharistic Adoration has made quite a comeback.  Twenty five years ago, you’d have been hard pressed to find two or three parishes in a large diocese that had regular Adoration hours.  Now, most parishes have Adoration at least weekly. 

So, if you go here, you can find a list of most parishes in the US that offer Eucharistic Adoration, their location, and when they offer it.  I say most parishes, because I know of a few that haven’t been added to the list, but this site should help anyone find a convenient adoration site, either near their own home or when travelling. 

I should also add here, again, that St. Mark in Plano is to be commended for now offering 24 hour adoration every Friday, and 40 hour Adoration periodically.  In fact, starting tomorrow (Thursday, 03/04) at 3 pm, there will be a 40 hour period of Adoration.   This is wonderful, and exactly what the late Great Pope John Paul II had in mind when he exhorted pastors and bishops to make Eucharistic Adoration more widely available. 

Eucharistic Adoration is a beautiful way of honoring God and meditating on his wondrous nature.  There is really no better way to come closer to Jesus, than to honor and glorify him directly, in His Presence.  I encourage everyone to venerate Jesus in Eucharistic Adoration weekly, if possible.  It can do great wonders for you, and the Church.

St. Patrick’s up in Denison has perpetual Adoration!  I’ve been meaning to take a pilgrimage to what I am told is a very beautiful Church, now I have another reason to do so!

    St. Maria Goretti in Arlington has Eucharistic Adoration 7 days a week from 7:00AM to 9:00PM. We just celebrated our 10th year of adoring Christ!

    In other dioceses like San Antonio and Houston there is perpetual Eucharistic adoration, but not in Dallas. Not to mention they have several churches that have perpetual Eucharistic adoration, and we don’t even have one. Why is that? I get off of work at midnight in Dallas, and it would be nice to spend time with our Lord.

Got something to say?
