Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament has been a tradition from the very earliest times in the church. The Eucharist is the real presence of Christ among us.
Benediction is a time when we can meditate and pray as the Blessed Sacrament is exposed before us. For those who cannot get to Liverpool for the Eucharistic Congress – ‘Adoremus’ this weekend (7th-9th September) we will have our celebration here in St Joseph’s next week.
There are three one hour Benedictions planned as follows:
- Saturday 15th September after evening Mass from 7-8pm
- Sunday 16th September from 1-2pm
- Monday from 9.30-10.30am.
Donations to decorate the Altar with flowers will be most welcome.
