Saint Ignatius Parish - Eucharistic Adoration Ministry
Pastoral > Commissions > Worship
Eucharistic Adoration used to be observed in the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament, off of the Sacristy of St. Ignatius Church - a haven of peace developed by Fr. Nash and a group from the Parish Worship Commission Eucharistic Adoration sub-committee after a visit by Brother Michael Tapajna in 1998. Subsequently, Brother Michael became Father Michael after his ordination in Rome in April of 2002. A committee of volunteers including Moira Abbott and Fay Anne de Freitas has guided the development of Eucharistic Adoration since its inception.
On December 4th 2016, a new purpose-built chapel was dedicated as the Divine Mercy Adoration Chapel. The concept, planning and construction of the chapel was the culminating work of Fr. Suresh Rajaian, Pastor (2013-2018), assisted by the some members of the Parish Worship Commission. The name was chosen by poll.
The Eucharistic Adoration committee was not involved in the design or naming of the new chapel but continues to manage its schedule.
"My Jesus! What a lovable contrivance this holy Sacrament was - that You would hide under the appearance of bread to make Yourself loved and to be available for a visit by anyone who desires You!" - St. Alphonsus Ligouri
"To speak of the Blessed Sacrament is to speak of what is most sacred. How often, when we are in a state of distress, those to whom we look for help leave us; or what is worse, add to our affliction by heaping fresh troubles upon us. He is ever there waiting to help us." - St. Euphrasia Pelletier, Foundress of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd
