Why would I want to come to the chapel?
Come to visit Jesus, who is present here, body and soul, just as when He walked in Galilee. Come because Our Lord has so many graces and blessings to shower upon you when you are in His presence. Come because you have so many blessings in your life and you wish to thank Him in person. Come because you are troubled, and He will ease your burden. Come because you love Him. Come because He loves you!
Where is the chapel?
Our beautiful chapel is located in the Parish Center at 2220 Lisson Road on the South West corner of the parking lot. Enter from the parking lot. Follow the signs. During hours of darkness, you will need a pass code to enter the chapel. See your adorer’s packet or ask your hourly coordinator.
Is there someone always praying in the chapel?
Yes, there are scheduled adorers 24 hours a day. If you’d like to sign up for an hour each week call number on the back of this brochure. If you would like to just make a visit, please come and see.
What if I must leave the chapel before my hour is up?
Follow the Emergency Procedure Manual in the sign in area. Be familiar with the procedures outlined in your adorer’s packet.
What if I can’t make it to my regularly scheduled time?
Check with your prayer buddies first. If they plan to be there, just let know them that you’ll be gone. If they are planning to be away also, call in advance to get a sub.
What if I can’t find a substitute?
all your hourly coordinator or the Divisional Leader. See phone numbers in your adorer’s packet or in the Emergency Procedure Manual.
What if I don’t know what to say to Jesus?
That’s okay; maybe He wants to say some things to you! Take some time to just be in His presence and listen. There are many booklets on the shelves to help you get started in your conversations with Jesus.
What if I have a question or a suggestion about something not listed in this booklet?
Please feel free to call your hourly or divisional coordinator, or any of the Adoration Committee members listed in your packet.
What if I would like other adorers to pray for my needs?
You can enter any petition (a request you have of God), in our Petitions Book. You needn’t write down specific names — just “for my sister who has cancer,” etc. All adorers pray for these intentions whenever they are in the chapel. Be persistent in prayer–don’t just ask once and give up! Feel free to browse the petitions of others before entering the chapel, and hold these intentions in your heart.
What if God has answered my prayers?
Praise Our Lord! If you wish, we have a book of “Answered Prayers”. Write down a short account of how God has come to your aid so others may know His goodness. Let the light of Christ shine through you!
Can I bring children?
Yes! The Lord says to bring the little ones to Him. Please instruct your children to be quiet when they are in the chapel as a courtesy to others.
Can I invite a friend to come with me?
Of course, please encourage those in your family and friends near and far to come to the chapel for quiet prayer time with the Lord.
Is there a phone or restroom available?
Yes, the phone is for emergencies. It is located on a little table by the library bookcase. To visit the restroom, you go through the door near the phone, up two steps and the restroom is marked right there.
