Come adore with us!

The Eucharist is at the heart of the life of the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and of St. Raphaela Center. Everyday, we have the Blessed Sacrament exposed on the altar of our beautiful chapel. Even if you’re not one of our guests on retreat, you’re very welcome to stop in for a “mini-retreat” in the chapel or the St. Raphaela Shrine. Just enter through the door of Our Lady's Hall. Adoration takes place as follows:

  • Every morning from 10:00am until noon
  • Thursday through Sunday from 4:00 to 6:00pm
  • Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 to 9:00pm

Take a few moments out of your busy day for some privileged time with Jesus present in the Eucharist in a quiet space of peace and beauty.

In addition to daily adoration, we also offer a monthly time of guided adoration. Once a month (schedule coming!), the Handmaids have adoration in the St. Raphaela Center Chapel throughout the night. You are invited to join in prayer with them as they begin this vigil with Jesus. Each month, everyone present will be invited to participate in a guided prayer of adoration surrounding a particular theme. This is a wonderful opportunity to share and deepen your faith, grow in love for Jesus in the Eucharist, and pray together with others.

Come see how the Eucharist can become a source of transformation and sustenance in your life ... for the life of the world!
