Eucharistic Adoration and benediction




Adoration exalts the greatness of the Lord who made us and the almighty power of the Saviour who sets us free from evil

(Catechism of the Catholic Church 2628)


The Exposition and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament is not only a very old devotion in our Church, but one that highlights the fundamental mystery of the Holy Eucharist that our Lord is truly present, body and blood, soul and divinity, in the Blessed Sacrament.


The priest places the Blessed Sacrament in a monstrance on the altar for adoration. At the end of the period of adoration, the priest then blesses the congregation with the Blessed Sacrament, making the sign of the cross. This blessing is known as Benediction.
