What is the Saint Cabrini Eucharistic Adoration Society?
The Saint Cabrini Adoration Society is a unique ministry within the mission of The National Shrine of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini and is sponsored by the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Eucharistic Adoration is based upon the belief that the Eucharist nourishes and supports the spiritual life of practicing Catholics. The Eucharist is at the center of a Catholic’s spirituality. Adoration is a sign of devotion to and worship of Jesus Christ.
What happens in the Adoration Society at the National Shrine of Mother Cabrini?
By spending time (called a Holy Hour) in prayer and adoration before the Blessed Sacrament, a Catholic has an opportunity to experience the power of the redeeming love of Jesus Christ and stir their religious passion by deepening their relationship with Christ. Eucharistic Adoration allows us to draw ourselves closer to Christ through silent prayer and reflection. The Blessed Sacrament becomes a focal point of devotion, as Jesus waits for our love, thanksgiving and repentance through this liturgical service. The service concludes with Benediction.
