"The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth. Each moment that you spend with Jesus will deepen your union with Him and make your soul everlastingly more glorious and beautiful in Heaven, and
will help bring about everlasting peace on earth,"
- Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Throughout the year, each child from school will have the opportunity to take part in Adoration in St. Alphege's Church.
Adoration is when we go to adore Jesus Christ. Jesus's body is on display in the monstrance on the altar. During Adoration, we make ourselves aware of Jesus's presence and take time to be with Him fully. We are calm, quiet, reverent and prayerful during Adoration.
Sara Sampson our RE Link Governor leads us through Adoration in class groups.
Prayer of Adoration of the Eucharist
My Lord Jesus Christ, I adore you in all the tabernacles of the world. I ofer you
my life in reparation for the sins against the Blessed Sacrament, the unworthy
communions, disrespect, lack of reverence in your churches, and countless
other sins against your most Holy Body and Blood. Please, my Lord, increase
my faith in your Eucharistic presence so that my devotion may be fanned into a
flame of love of you and that I may go into the world to proclaim your
kingdom. I ask this of your mercy in your Holy Name. Amen.
Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, pray for us!
