Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

"The worldy-minded might believe the truth of the Eucharist if they heard the singing of the angels at the consecration as the shepherds did at His birth.

Do you not see the kings kneeling among the animals in front of the Crib? Do you not see them in that lowly condition — so humiliating for kings — adoring this feeble child, Who looks at them wonderingly?"

— St. Peter Julian Eymard

**At this time, Our Lady of Lourdes is looking for two volunters to be the Co-chairs and facilitators of the Perpetual Adoration Chapel.  Please call the Rectory office at 860-464-7251 for more information.   Our Parish is most grateful to Barbara & Bill Souder for their 20 years of faithfulness, support and driving force of the Adoration Chapel.  Thank you for all you do for Our Lady of Lourdes!**

NOTICE REGARDING THE ADORATION CHAPEL

The Adoration Chapel will remain closed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.  It is impossible to fulfill the requirements necessary for its opening without tremendous expense.

Issues regarding this are:

  • Lack of necessary fresh air circulation
  • Lack of necessary volunteers to have two (2) adorers at all times
  • The difficulty of social distancing, due to confined space
  • Unable to guarantee continuous sanitizing of the area

This is disappointing to parishioners, but we think about the safety of all.  The Church will continue to remain open from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM daily.
