From the University Chaplain, Fr. Shawn Roberson, T.O.R.

Spending time in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament is a most precious privilege that the Church extends to all of us. If we have committed ourselves to a weekly time slot, that commitment should be considered a sacred one that we should not take lightly. Should anyone for any reason, not be able to make his or her time commitment they should make every effort to find their replacement. In that way we will be faithful to the prayer time we have promised to the Lord.

“Every effort should be made to ensure that there should be at least two people present. There must absolutely never be periods when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed and there is no one present for adoration….” - Responsum ad dubium received by the USCCB Committee on Liturgy (July 1995), in Solemn Exposition of the Holy Eucharist.

Matthew Chapter 26:40-41 When he returned to his disciples he found them asleep. He said to Peter, "So you could not keep watch with me for one hour? Watch and pray that you may not undergo the test.


In order for Adoration in the Portiuncula to open on Wednesday, September 11th, all time slots must be filled.
