Beginning Tuesday, September 3rd, Saint Bridget will hold Eucharistic Adoration in the Church from 5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. every Tuesday. Our regularly scheduled Tuesday confessions will continue to take place from 5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Why is the Eucharist So Important?
Coming from the Greek word for "thanksgiving," the Eucharist is not merely a symbol or reenactment of the Last Supper, but Jesus' complete and personal gift of Himself to us - body, blood, soul and divinity - in the tangible form of bread and wine. At every Mass God fulfills His promise to always be with us, in this most physical and intimate of ways.
What Happens in Adoration?
When we "adore," we pay honor or homage to someone or something. In Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament we get to grow closer to God through praise of His Son Jesus in the Eucharist. Time in Adoration can be spent reading Scripture, praying the Rosary, and most importantly, sitting in silence with God.
"I will be with you always until the end of the age."
- Matthew 28:20
