Eucharistic Adoration sign-ups are in the St. Peter Church foyer. The custom of Forty Hours Devotion began in the 1500s in memory of the 40 hours our Lord remained in the tomb. The purpose of the devotion is to express faith in the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. The Holy Eucharist is publicly exposed in a Monstrance (Latin monstrare means “to show”) for the veneration of the faithful. Kneeling symbolizes adoration and awe in the presence of God.
