Eucharistic Adoration

 adore

St. Jerome Parish offers perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the Mater Christi Adoration Chapel. Stop by anytime or sign up to visit Our Blessed Lord for an hour each week on a regular basis. Please note: the church is locked when the Parish Office is closed, and adorers during these hours must have the access code to enter the church. Please contact Anne Simonis, 262-567-1339.

There are several hours during the week in which we need additional adorers. If you would like to take an hour or an additional hour, please contact Anne Simonis, 262-567-1339, or Kurt Kellogg, 262-560-0083.

 

Why Participate?

Reason 1: Jesus Wants It

Jesus loves us infinitely. Outside of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, there is no better place to spend time with Our Lord. When Jesus spoke to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque in an apparition, He said, " I have a burning thirst to be honored by men in the Blessed Sacrament." Perhaps you might say, "I meet Jesus in the world, in other people." That indeed is true, but we meet Jesus -- Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity -- in the Sacred Host.  Jesus stays with us day and night in the Blessed Sacrament, calling each of us to Him: "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest."  (Matthew 11:28)  Jesus gives us graces that encourage us, console us, strengthen us, guide us and inspire us to place all of our trust in His Sacred Heart.


Reason 2: Pope John Paul II

"The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits us in this Sacrament of Love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration and in contemplation that is full of faith and ready to make reparation for the great faults and crimes of the world. May our adoration never cease."
