“24 HOURS FOR THE LORD”
CHURCH OF ST. ANDREW
PERPETUAL ADORATION
USCCB Video
Jesus invites you to spend a Holy Hour with Him. Jesus loves you. He is waiting for you, He thirsts for you, He is calling out to you to come and sit with Him awhile and discover the graces He has in store for you. You can choose what time and day works best for you and then sign up to commit to an hour a week.

The Church of St. Andrew will begin Perpetual Adoration on Sunday November 13, 2016 after the celebration of the 12:30 PM Mass.

The Church of St. Andrew greatly needs Hourly Coordinators and Adorers to fill our Adoration schedule.

God will bless you abundantly with graces and consolations for just one hour a week.

Contact Adoration Leads Colleen Solors, 763-441-7179 or Eva Jahnke, 763-441-3102, to take the time to gaze upon Jesus who will never abandon you!
 
What is Adoration?
Adoration is a quiet time spent in prayer before Jesus present in the Eucharist. A Consecrated Host is placed in the center of a sacred vessel called a Monstrance The word Monstrance means " to show”. The Monstrance is then set in a place for all to see and worship. Jesus truly is present body, blood, soul and divinity in the Consecrated Host or "Blessed Sacrament."
 
Why should I go?
To deepen your personal relationship with Jesus and grow in faith, hope, and love. St. Peter Julian Eymard said that every time you look at Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament your place in heaven is raised. Besides that future goal, right now, here on earth, Jesus will give you His peace within you as you spend time with Him. Just as you can't be exposed to the sun without receiving its rays, neither can you come into the Light and Presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament without receiving the divine rays of His grace, His love, His peace.
 
What do I do during my hour?
You may spend the time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament any way you want. You may bring prayer books, read the Bible, pray the Rosary, or just sit, relax and enjoy the peace that comes from being in His Presence. You may feel you can't pray well. Don't let this discourage you. The fact that you came to spend time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament pleases Him very much, and is in itself a prayer of faith.
 
How can I show my Love for Jesus?
By coming to Adoration quietly and with reverence. By kneeling on both knees before going to the chairs or kneelers. By keeping still as you and others pray. By trying to lift your mind and heart to Jesus during Adoration. Try thinking about His sufferings and believe that He suffered all He did because you are very precious and worth everything to Him! "Our essential commitment in life is to grow spiritually in the climate of the Holy Eucharist." Pope John Paul II
