St. Thomas More    Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

One way of enhancing one’s prayer life is the practice of devotions. You may want to consider participating in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and The Litany to the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the first Friday of every month in the Parish Center chapel.

  • 10:00 am to 5:00 pm - Adoration of the Blesses Sacrament
  • 4:30 pm - Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
  • 4:45 pm - Benediction and Reposition of the Blessed Sacrament

The Eucharist is Jesus' gift of himself to us. He is truly there, in the tabernacles of the world, in the form of simple bread consecrated into his sacred body, blood, soul and divinity. From there he offers us the comfort of his company and the gift of his love. To sit with him is to experience his peace and serenity. Spending time with him will remind you that he loves you so much he willingly laid down his life for you. To be with him will reassure you that because of his glorious resurrection you have nothing to fear. To adore Jesus in the Eucharist is to receive and enjoy the gift of his eternal real presence.

The common definition of "devotions” is those external practices of piety that give life to an individual or communal yearning for union with God and with the saints. Devotions are spiritual exercises that express the soul’s love for God, bring comfort to the heart, and prompt the practice of virtue. In addition to participating in the sacraments of the Church, particularly the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the practice of popular devotions is highly recommended for spiritual development and growing in a personal relationship with God.
