Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration began at St. Raphael on June 1, 1997. The chapel in the parish convent was renovated to improve security and facilitate access to the chapel for this purpose. Since then, twenty -four hours a day, seven days a week, someone has been present in the chapel with the Blessed Sacrament. There are no complex rules dictating how an Adorer spends his or her time. You may spend the time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament any way you want. You may bring prayer books, read the bible, pray the rosary, or just sit, relax and enjoy the peace that comes from being in His Presence. You may feel you can’t pray well. Don’t let this discourage you. The fact that you came to spend time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament pleases Him very much, and is in itself a prayer of faith. St. Raphael Parishioners are encouraged to consider making Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament a part of their lives. Contact Therese Juba at 763- 533-8514 or Betty Krueter at 763-537-1399.
