Adoremus - Let us adore: Our Eucharistic Journey

The National Eucharistic Pilgrimage and Congress took place in Liverpool between 7th –9th September under the title ‘Adoremus’ (Let us adore). Through the Congress we are invited to renew and deepen our faith in, and devotion towards, the presence of the Lord Jesus in the Eucharist – both in the celebration of the Mass and in adoration and prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.

 

‘Adoremus will be a unique opportunity for the Church to gather and reflect on the centrality of the Eucharist and particularly to explore the place of Eucharistic Adoration.’

Cardinal Vincent Nichols

Our Eucharistic Journey

Schools and parishes across the Diocese of Westminster are being invited to make ‘Our Eucharistic Journey’ together, deepening our love for Jesus in Mass and the Blessed Sacrament. Teaching the children who the Eucharist is and giving them a real and positive experience of the Blessed Sacrament will help to nurture the Church of the future.

At St. Mary of the Angels we will be leading a number of initiatives and activities to deepen the children’s understanding of the Eucharist over the school year. Each half term we will explore a theme related to ’Our Eucharistic Journey’. This will be undertaken at an age appropriate level through prayer and worship experiences, creative art and design projects and through music and drama activities. We will also be planning opportunities for families of the school to become involved.

Adoremus Prayer

Jesus, You are truly present
in the Most Holy Eucharist.
Help me feel Your presence
every time I visit you.
Give me Your strength
when I receive You
in Holy Communion.
And, receiving Your love,
help me take that love to others.
I ask this in Your name.

Amen
