“The best, the surest and the most effective way of establishing everlasting peace on the face of the earth is through the great power of Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.”Pope John Paul II – 1982
Towards the end of 2010, the parish of St. Simon Peter made the concerted commitment to increase the time we spend adoring our Blessed Lord in the Holy Eucharist, with the ultimate goal of being able to have Perpetual Adoration in our parish. Towards this end, our beautiful Adoration Chapel was built and subsequently blessed by His Grace, Emeritus Archbishop Barry Hickey in June 2011.
The times currently available for Adoration are:
Monday 9am to 9pm
Tuesday 9am to 6.50pm
Wednesday 9am to 9pm
Thursday 9am to 7.00pm
Friday 9am to 6.50pm
Benediction in the Chapel is on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings at 6:50pm and on Wednesdays at 9pm.
Since it is imperative that the Blessed Sacrament when exposed in the Monstrance is adored at all times, a roster for two people per hour has been established to ensure the smooth transition of this most important devotion.
A commitment is necessary to be placed on the roster, vacant hours are always available. If you are interested, please contact the Parish office.
