All are welcome to adore our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament this First Friday. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament is held following the 12:10pm Mass until 5pm in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, located to the left of the sanctuary.
The U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops made a video (click here to view) that includes short testimonies by area people on why they participate in Eucharistic Adoration. You may recognize the Adoration Chapel at St. Agnes in Arlington, VA, which offers Perpetual Adoration (24/7).
"In a world where there is so much noise, so much bewilderment, there is a need for silent adoration of Jesus concealed in the Host. . . . It is a source of comfort and light, particularly to those who are suffering.” (Pope Benedict XVI)
