Our Adoration Chapels
The Petersburg Parishes have two Eucharistic Adoration Chapels offering perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
St. Joseph: Chapel opens at noon on Sunday and closes at midnight on Thursday.
Immaculate Conception: Chapel opens at noon on Sunday and closes at 8:00pm on Friday.
If you would like to sign up for an hour of Adoration, please call the parish office at (419)738-2115.
If you aren’t able to sign up for an hour, you are most welcome to visit Jesus whenever our chapels are open.
What Is Eucharistic Adoration?
During Eucharistic Adoration, the Eucharist is displayed in a monstrance in the constant company of the faithful who pray to Jesus Christ. It is His Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity that is really, truly, and substantially present in the Eucharist.
While it is true that you can pray to God anywhere and that He is always within you, it is especially powerful to adore Jesus in the Eucharist. In the presence of the Eucharist, we pray to the power and sacrifice that it represents, the Body of Jesus who gave His life for us. While we receive the Eucharist in communion at Mass, being in the presence of the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ gives spiritual strength and nourishment in a uniquely powerful way.
