Perpetual Adoration

Our Eucharistic Lord is exposed in Monstrance in the chapel 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All are welcome to come adore Him for any length of time.  Perpetual Adorers commit to a regular weekly hour of prayer to adore our Lord and to pray for souls.


We invite you to be a perpetual adorer

If you would like to sign up for an hour of prayer once-a-week, please contact Jenny Witt at 309-682-8642, ext. 2104 or Some couples and families share their holy hour time with another family and they rotate every other week. We do have substitutes available if you need to miss your holy hour.

For a list of Current available times, contact Jenny Witt.

Perpetual Adoration Chapel History

The Perpetual Adoration Chapel was started at St. Philomena in 1994. On January 1, 2011, the Feast of Mary, the Mother of God, we opened our new Adoration Chapel. The chapel was officially consecrated by Bishop Daniel Jenky, CSC, on March 27, 2011 when he came to St. Philomena for Confirmation. During the week of January 1, we held several open houses to familiarize parishioners and adorers with the Chapel and to provide access cards. We hope you will find the chapel to be a simple and beautiful prayer space. The graces associated with parishes that operate an Adoration Chapel are well-founded. There are so many people to thank for the completion of this project. Special thanks to the Williams' family who has provided leadership since the beginning of the Adoration program at St. Philomena. In 2010, our Adoration Chapel Committee met several times to direct the construction and the needs of St. Philomena Adorers. We are so thankful to each of them for their time and advice. The benefits from those meetings were eveident from the beginning to the end of the project. Thank you to all parishioners who offered a helping hand.
