"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." - Matt 11:28
About Our Chapel
We have a beautiful Eucharistic Chapel that never closes. It is always there for you providing a sacred place for private devotions, prayers, and visits to the Blessed Sacrament.
We know that your daily life is hectic and filled with noise that can often make prayer life difficult. We encourage you to stop by our chapel to find a moment of peace, solace, and reflection in the presence of our Lord.
About Eucharistic Adoration
Adoration will help grow your spiritual life by spending only one hour a week before the Lord in prayer and meditation.
Started in 2000, our parish is one of the few in the Columbus area that has perpetual adoration. At the present time we have over 250 people involved but continually need new people to fill hours that are completely open and prayer partners for other hours. Our purpose is to glorify our Lord through adoration seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day.
An adorer commits to one hour a week of prayer and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Anytime you are in need for quiet prayer and contemplation, feel free to come in to spend some time with our Lord.
Adorers and substitutes are always needed. We encourage you to review hours that are available (sign-in book found in Adoration Chapel) and we then ask that you pray about spending an hour each week with the Lord.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does one do for a full hour in the adoration chapel? Please pray for your family, our parish, our clergy, our city, country and the world. Certainly one can read, such as the Bible, the Catechism, the Liturgy of the Hours; one can pray the Rosary or the Divine Mercy Chaplet; or one can Journal with the Lord. Yet it is not so much about DOING as it is BEING in the presence of Jesus. Try to spend at least part of the time just gazing on Him and silently listening to Him - “I look at him, and he looks at me” (see Catechism #2715). Here is a good reference with some more ideas.
I can pray anywhere. Why come to the chapel to pray? After all, God is everywhere. It is true that you can pray anywhere, and we should. Scripture tells us to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thes 5:17). However something amazing happened a little over 2000 years ago – the second person of the Holy Trinity became man - “the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us” (John 1:14). Since then, Jesus has been present to us in a special way in the Eucharist. It is great to talk to a friends on the phone, but there is something extra special about talking to them in person. Likewise, it is very powerful to be in the same space where Christ is present “body, blood, soul and divinity” in the tabernacle, or in the monstrance. It is as if Jesus is sitting in a chair behind a veil – He is really present!
I go to Mass and receive Holy Communion on Sundays. Why should I spend time in Eucharistic Adoration? Isn't the Mass the greatest prayer of all? Yes, it is the power of the Mass that allows us to continue to be in His presence when we visit the chapel. The Mass is a communal prayer, and adoration allows us to, in a sense, continue our worship at Mass in a more personal and private setting in the chapel.
Why dedicate and sign up for a weekly hour in the chapel? I can always just stop in. It is wonderful if you already stop into the chapel on a regular basis and spend time with Jesus. Yet, many of us need a little nudge to keep us motivated. By signing up, you are saying in a more visible way that you are committed to keeping this weekly time with Christ. Whether you sign up for a Holy Hour or not, come and spend time with Him.
I stopped by the chapel to pray one evening and it was locked. The chapel door, located adjacent to the breezeway on the east side of the church, is open during the day, but closes automatically in the evening. If you need the combination for evening or early morning access, ask at the parish office or call or contact us using the contact information on this page.
