Good resource – find Eucharist Adoration anywhere in USA March 3, 2010

My sweet, beautiful, wonderful wife found a good resource on teh Intarwebs for Eucharistic Adoration.  You know, that thing Richard McBrien says is backwards, medieval, and superstitious, where we worship Christ in our midst through the Blessed Sacrament.   Eucharistic Adoration has made quite a comeback.  Twenty five years ago, you’d have been hard pressed to find two or three parishes in a large diocese that had regular Adoration hours.  Now, most parishes have Adoration at least weekly. 

So, if you go here, you can find a list of most parishes in the US that offer Eucharistic Adoration, their location, and when they offer it.  I say most parishes, because I know of a few that haven’t been added to the list, but this site should help anyone find a convenient adoration site, either near their own home or when travelling. 

I should also add here, again, that St. Mark in Plano is to be commended for now offering 24 hour adoration every Friday, and 40 hour Adoration periodically.  In fact, starting tomorrow (Thursday, 03/04) at 3 pm, there will be a 40 hour period of Adoration.   This is wonderful, and exactly what the late Great Pope John Paul II had in mind when he exhorted pastors and bishops to make Eucharistic Adoration more widely available. 

Eucharistic Adoration is a beautiful way of honoring God and meditating on his wondrous nature.  There is really no better way to come closer to Jesus, than to honor and venerate him directly, in His Presence.  I encourage everyone to venerate Jesus in Eucharistic Adoration weekly, if possible.  It can do great wonders for you, and the Church.

One thing I did note on the Adoration finder site, is that there seemed to be a relative dirth of listings for Adoration in the North Deanery of our own Dallas Diocese.   I’m not sure if this is because the site needs updating, or a number of parishes in Plano, Frisco, and McKinney just don’t have Adoration yet.  I will try to research this myself, but if any of my readers could chime in on the comments regarding Adoration times at the following parishes, I’d appreciate it:

Prince of Peace, Plano
St. Francis of Asissi, Frisco
Our Lady of Angels, Allen
St. Gabriel, McKinney
St. Michael’s, McKinney

St. Patrick’s up in Denison has perpetual Adoration!  I’ve been meaning to take a pilgrimage to what I am told is a very beautiful Church, now I have another reason to do so!

Yes, the website had numerous listings of parishes in Dallas County that offer Adoration, but only a few in Collin County.
