The Blessed Sacrament is reserved both for the Communion of the sick and those unable to join in the Sunday Eucharist, and also for adoration by the faithful. The Blessed Sacrament Chapel is open continuously for private adoration and quiet personal prayer. It is accessible through the nave during the day, and via the south doors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our parish strives to "pray without ceasing" in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, by asking parishioners to signup for one hour each week.

The Rite of Exposition provides an opportunity for solemn communal prayer in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. Each Thursday, the Blessed Sacrament is exposed following the 8:30 AM Mass throughout the day. A “Holy Hour”, beginning at 7:00 PM invites prayer for a particular need of the Church or the world (e.g. human life, vocations, youth, etc.) It includes Vespers (Evening Prayer) at 7:30 PM, and concludes with the Rite of Benediction at approximately 8:00 PM.
