Could you not watch with me one hour’ (Matthew 26:40)


Eucharistic Adoration is the practice of praying before Jesus in the form of the Eucharistic host.  The host is exposed in a special vessel known as a monstrance.

At St Andrew’s Parish Eucharistic Adoration is offered every Friday 8.30am – 4pm to the Parish Community for regular attendance (1 hour time slots) as well being open to anyone who wants to come and spend time in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.

During Eucharistic Adoration you are invited to pray in all sorts of ways; Meditative Prayer, Contemplative Prayer, silent conversation with Jesus, praying the Rosary, prayer journalling, reading Sacred Scripture or even just simply sitting and soaking up God’s love in the presence of Jesus.

We are urgently seeking regular Adorers to sign up for 1 hour time slots.  Please contact one of the team: Carla 0422 705 677, Joan 0408 882 052 or Beryl at



ADORATION Prayer (video)

Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us not refuse the time to go to meet him in adoration, in contemplation full of faith, and open to making amends for the serious offenses and crimes of the world. Let our adoration never cease.



Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi before the Blessed Sacrament

We adore You, O Lord Jesus Christ, in this Church and all the Churches of the world, and we bless You, because, by Your holy Cross You have redeemed the world.




Prayer for the Spread of Perpetual Adoration

Heavenly Father, increase our faith in the Real Presence of Your Son Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
We are obliged to adore Him, to give Him thanks and to make reparation for sins.
We need your peace in our hearts and among nations.
We need conversion from our sins and the mercy of Your forgiveness.
May we obtain this through prayer and our union with the Eucharistic Lord.
Please send down the Holy Spirit upon all peoples to give them the love, courage, strength and willingness to respond to the invitation to Eucharistic Adoration.
We beseech You to spread Perpetual Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament in parishes around the world.
We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.  Amen

Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament
Help us to spread the glory of Your Son through Perpetual Adoration.
