The Perpetual Adoration Chapel

On Saturday, November 28, 1998, the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Towson began Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Parishioners from many parishes committed themselves to pray for one hour a week before the Blessed Sacrament. Perpetual Adoration at Immaculate Conception is meant for all parishes in the area. All are invited to be part of this important and much needed prayer program.

What is Adoration?

Adoration is a devotion in which the Eucharist remains exposed on the altar held in what is called a "monstrance" from the Latin "monstrare", meaning "to show". Perpetual Adoration continues without interruption 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in which parishioners commit to a specific day and time (one hour) every week.

When you look upon the Sacred Host, you look upon Jesus, the Son of God. "Indeed, this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks upon the Son and believes in Him shall have eternal life. Him I will raise up on the last day." (John 6:40)

Why Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament?

  1. To bring honor and glory to Our Lord through praise and worship.
  2. To profess your faith and gratitude for His True Presence in the Eucharist.
  3. To deepen your prayer life and personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
  4. To spend time listening to Our Lord to discover His will for your life.
  5. To be healed physically, spiritually and emotionally.
  6. To deepen His peace within you

"All Praise to You Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. You are the hope of the world."

All are welcome from 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m daily. For security reasons, only scheduled adorers will have access to the chapel from 10:00 p.m. - 5:00 a.m.

Please consider being an adorer. This is a great time to make a commitment to an hour a week before the Blessed Sacrament. If you cannot commit to an hour a week, can you form a team of four people each taking one hour a month? Please contact the parish office at 410-427-4700 if you are interested.

"What we need is for every Parish to come before Jesus In the Blessed Sacrament in holy hours of Prayer." -- Mother Theresa
