Pandemic or Covid-19 in 2020

Some parishes have parking lot adoration by putting the Monstrance facing a window with a scheduled adorer outside in their car in parking lot and social distancing. Others increased or moved adoration to the main body of the church instead of their small chapel.

Directory of Adoration Sites in Canada

Adoration of the blessed sacrament | St. Gabriel the Archangel Catholic Community | McKinney, TX (stgabriel.org)

Besides these adoration sites, Mary is also known as the “House of God” and “Gate of Heaven” (Litany of the Blessed Virgin). The Immaculate Heart of Mary is also considered to be our spiritual centre – she is our protectress and defender of adoration in Canada. St. Joseph, “Patron of Canada” and “terror of demons” is also our model adorer and protector.  He found and prepared the manger where he first adored Jesus with Mary.

Iconic and Divine Mercy

Considering the hundreds of thousands of hours of prayer that will be offered for decades ahead if a parish starts continual or extended Eucharistic adoration, it is a comparatively small amount of time and effort involved.  Fewer suicides would take place with perpetual Eucharistic adoration chapels and the Immaculate Heart of Mary as safe refuges.

Most parishes have a Monstrance. Small Monstrances and custom granite indoor/outdoor sign promoting or dedicating adoration chapel or grave marker – free shipping are available through our Shop on this website.
