Eucharistic Adoration
Eucharistic Adoration Brochure
This brochure is intended to assist with making a visit to the Blessed Sacrament and Eucharistic Adoration.

Julie Hill from St. Joseph the Worker Parish in Dubuque has developed a special session for both students and parents on Eucharistic Adoration. She offers both an explanation of the session, a detailed lesson plan with times assigned for each part of the lesson as well as an invitation for parents to attend this event, a poster, and a family worksheet.  Archbishop Jackels has stressed the importance of Eucharistic Adoration so you may consider a session such as this to your program. For more information, email Julie at DBQ062RE@dbqarch.org. See these documents.
