Eucharistic Adoration

A consecrated host from the Mass is placed in a Monstrance, which is designed to allow the faithful the opportunity to adore Jesus Christ’s true presence in the Eucharist.

History of St. Philomena Adoration Chapel

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. We hope you find the chapel to be a simple and beautiful prayer space. The graces associated with parishes that operate an Adoration Chapel are well-founded. We are blessed by our parish family’s commitment to Adoration of Our Lord.

How I Get a Key
