All Saints Adoration Chapel
What is adoration, and why should you go? Adoration is quiet prayer with Jesus who is visible, exposed and truly present in the Host in the monstrance. It is a statement of your faith in His true presence in the Blessed Sacrament. Adoration is prayer. It is a very personal prayer of thanks, worship, petition. And silence. It is being with Him and listening to Him. It is an act of love for Him.
What do you do while you are in there? Just walk in, kneel down and start to pray. Any silent prayer is good. Some people read the Bible or other religious book, pray the rosary, or just look at Him. Talk to Him. Listen to Him. Most stay for one hour. Some stay for a half hour, and some stay for 5 minutes. Any time spent with Him will change you and bring you closer to Him. You can sit in the Son and not get a tan.
How do you sign up? To sign up for a specific hour or half hour of Adoration, call Mike Thielsen at 815–385-8562 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Many more people are needed to fill the 168 hours of adoration offered each week. If you can’t commit to one hour, just stop in when you are able to. Jesus waits patiently for your visit.
Permanent Adorers are always needed. Please contact the Parish Office to find about filling an open spot. Our goal is to have two adorers at all times. God bless you!

“He who receives the Most Holy Communion receives the living Jesus Christ, whose body, soul, and divinity are in this divine Sacrament…let us clearly see in spirit the holy angels who surround this Most Holy Sacrament to adore it.”–Saint Francis de Sales
