St Luke Catholic Church
Eucharistic Adoration is when the priest takes a consecrated host and places it in a monstrance. Monstrance comes from the Latin "monstrare" - to show, to expose to view. The monstrance is then placed in front of the tabernackle (an ornate box which holds the monstrance and any consecrated hosts) or on the altar of the church for adoration.
During Eucharistic Adoration you may sit quietly or pray.
Eucharistic Adoration at St. Luke's is held on the First Friday of every month following the 9:00 am Mass through Benediction before the 7:00 pm Mass. A sign-up sheet is available in the vestibule the weekend before to schedule people to be in attendance through Adoration.
