Why? Jesus is waiting for us in His Sacrament of Love Jesus is truly present in the Eucharistic - Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity! He’s our true treasure
Why? During Eucharistic Adoration, We answer Jesus’ call to spent one hour with Him We worship Him in His Eucharistic presence We "watch and wait“ We remain "silent" in His Presence
Why? In adoring Jesus in His Real Presence we learn how to receive Him properly.
Why? We open ourselves to His Graces - which flows from the Eucharist... Like a magnet, The Lord draws us to Himself and gently transforms us. We become who God wants us to be!
Why? In its fullest essence ... Eucharistic Adoration is "God and Man reaching out for each other, at the same time! … In Eucharistic Adoration we experience a fore taste of Heaven that’s awaiting for us!
What is Eucharistic Adoration? Understood simply, it’s adoring or honoring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. In a deeper sense, it involves "the contemplation of the Mystery of Christ truly present before us".
ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE Pastor Oversees perpetual adoration Has responsibility for the Eucharist in the parish Provides support and encouragement. Perpetual Eucharistic adoration is a lay apostolate. It is lay organized and lay operated.
ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE Head Coordinator The head coordinator oversees the organization and operation of perpetual Eucharistic adoration.
ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE Division Leaders (Four Each) The main work of the four division leaders is done during the organizational phase. Each division leader calls the people who have checked off his or her particular time division on the invitation form and finds out the day and hour wanted. Each division leader fills out a schedule for the six hours, seven days a week or 42 hours.
ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE Division Leaders After perpetual adoration begins, the division leaders assist the head coordinator, as needed. The head coordinator and four division leaders form the core group. The core group members should be recruited before commitment weekend, but they can be recruited during the organization meeting if necessary.
ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE Prayer Teams Are made up of all the adorers/prayer angels, who have the same hour during the week. There are 24 prayer teams in all, one for each hour of the day. The prayer teams form the foundation of the substitute system.
ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE Hour Coordinators Are sometimes called "captains.“ There are twenty four hour coordinators, one for each hour of the day. Each hour coordinator is the head of his or her prayer team and is in charge of a block of seven hours.
