We are each encouraged to spend time in Eucharistic Adoration. This is time wonderfully spent in adoration, in contemplation and in the love of our Divine Lord.
Eucharistic Adoration is held:
7am-6:15pm Breaking for Masses
Please remember that this schedule is flexible due to the needs of the parish.
All are welcome at these times. If you would like to commit to an half hour or an hour a week, at a set time, please call the parish office at 330-644-2225 and you will be put in touch with the coordinator.
On Eucharistic Adoration...
It is highly fitting that Christ should have wanted to remain present to his Church in this unique way. Since Christ was about to take his departure from his own in his visible form, he wanted to give us his sacramental presence; since he was about to offer himself on the cross to save us, he wanted us to have the memorial of the love with which he loved us "to the end," even to the giving of his life. In his Eucharistic presence he remains mysteriously in our midst as the one who loved us and gave himself up for us, and he remains under signs that express and communicate this love. CCC1380
"The Church and the world have great need of Eucharistic adoration. Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration and contemplation full of faith. And let us be ready to make reparation for the great faults and crimes of the world. May our adoration never cease." (Pope John Paul II Dominicae Cenae: Letter to Priests, Holy Thursday, 1980)
"Closeness to the Eucharistic Christ in silence and contemplation does not distance us from our contemporaries but, on the contrary, makes us open to human joy and distress, broadening our hearts on a global scale. Through adoration the Christian mysteriously contributes to the radical transformation of the world and to the sowing of the gospel. Anyone who prays to the Eucharistic Savior draws the whole world with him and raises it to God." (Pope John Paul II Letter to the Bishop of Liege, Reported in L'Osserv. Romano, 1996)
