St. Jude is adding Monday Adoration!
Monday Adoration begins on December 4th at St. Jude. We are in need of a second adorer at 1:00pm, 3:00pm, and 4:00pm.
Of course, you can spend time with the Lord anytime, regardless of committing to an hour each week. Contact Maria Marstall at firstname.lastname@example.org for details or if you have questions.

So what is Adoration?
At St. Jude, Eucharistic Adoration with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament takes place each Wednesday starting after the 8:30am Mass until 9:00pm, and Friday starting after the 8:30am Mass unil 5:00pm that evening (and now Mondays too). Benediction starts at approximately 4:50pm. Please come by for a visit with our Lord. Spend a few minutes, an hour, or whatever your schedule allows at the time.
What is the importance of Eucharistic adoration?
Eucharistic adoration is the respect and worship we give to Jesus, who is truly present to us under the appearance of bread and wine. The Eucharist is a priceless treasure; by not only celebrating it but also by praying before it outside of Mass we are enabled to make contact with the very wellspring of grace. As St. Alphonsus Liguori noted, “Of all devotions, that of adoring Jesus in the Blessed sacrament is the greatest after the sacraments, the one dearest to God and the one most helpful to us.” [CCC 1418]
