Perpetual Adoration

I encourage all of you to discover ever more fully in the Eucharist, the sacrament of Christ’s sacrificial love, the inspiration and strength needed to work ever more generously for the spread of God’s Kingdom and the growth of the civilization of love.

Pope Benedict XV1 (Emeritus)

Thank you so much for making the decision to spend one hour a week with Jesus in our Adoration Chapel. Your choice makes your fellow adorers rejoice. You have the opportunity to create an abiding relationship with Jesus, who is your best friend.

Adorers Needed

OLPH is blessed to have an Adoration Chapel! It is Perpetual, meaning there is always someone adoring every hours of the week. Please join with other committed adorers in visiting with our Lord; one hour of your time each week. Early morning hours are hardest to fill, but they are also the most peaceful. We are in great need of adorers for these hours:

Sunday/domingo 5:00am, 6:00am, 7:00am, 4:00pm
Monday/lunes 6:00am, 9:00am, 2:00pm, 4:00pm, 6:00pm
Tuesday/martes 4:00am, 6:00am, 7:00am, 10:00am, 2:00pm
Thursday/jueves 8:00am, 6:00pm, 10:00pm
Friday/viernes 9:00am, 10:00am, 11:00am, 4:00pm, 6:00pm
Saturday/sáabado 10:00am, 2:00pm, 3:00pm, 4:00pm, 5:00pm, 8:00pm, 9:00pm

Please call the church office at 623-939-3789 if you can commit to one of these hours.

How do I become a perpetual adorer?

First, contact the OLPH Parish office at 623-939-9785, Monday-Friday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm or Saturday, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Leave your name and contact phone numbers and a member of the adoration society will promptly get in touch with you.

What happens next? A perpetual adorer will acquaint you with the details of adoration:

  • available adoration hours
  • time commitment
  • use of the adoration chapel
  • use of the chapel library
  • how to arrange for a substitute and
  • protocols for making a Holy Hour.

Where is the adoration chapel located?

The adoration chapel is within the Notre Dame Center which is the building just northwest of the entrance gate of OLPH School, the intersection of Vista Ave and 57th Avenue, Glendale.

The Notre Dame Center door has a security keypad. The code for the door is provided once registration for adoration is completed. As an adorer, you will receive an Adorer’s Information Packet (English or Spanish) which includes:

  • Adorer’s Instructions
  • Chapel Guidelines and Emergency Procedures
  • Organizational Chart
  • How to Make a Holy Hour of Adoration
  • A monstrance pin

Sometimes it is important to let our loved ones know that we pray for them. The chapel library provides Holy Hour prayer cards in English and Spanish. A more elaborate Holy Hour prayer card which features color photographs of the chapel and a formal envelope is available in the OLPH gift shop.

The chapel library also provides a variety of literature in both English and Spanish. All literature complies with Roman Catholic teaching and remains in the chapel for the enjoyment of all adorers.

There is also a log book where you may share with your fellow adorers the joys of answered prayers.

I would like to share a teaching that came to me one day as I sat before the Lord. I was just looking at the Blessed Sacrament and adoring Jesus and telling Him I did not have much to say except I loved Him. I felt as though the Lord said to me, ‘Well, don’t you know that you don’t have to say anything to Me. Just be with Me; it’s what I want to do for you.’

Sister Briege McKenna reflected in her book, Miracles Do Happen
