Eucharistic Adoration

People who desire to have a personal encounter with the Real Presence of Jesus Christ, at times other than when they receive the Eucharist at Mass, have ample opportunity to do so throughout the Diocese of Columbus during regularly scheduled times of Eucharistic adoration. 70 of the diocese’s 105 parishes offer adoration at some point each week throughout the year. Five parishes – Columbus, Immaculate Conception; Gahanna, St. Matthew; Pickerington, St. Elizabeth Seton; Sunbury, St. John Neumann, and Worthington, St. Michael – have adoration chapels open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, except when Masses are being celebrated or during the Sacred Triduum from the close of Holy Thursdayservices until the Easter Vigil. The Eucharist is taken away from tabernacles everywhere during that time to commemorate the period from Jesus’ death until His resurrection. Throughout this Easter Season, please consider some time spent in Adoration of the Eucharist. For a complete list of Adoration opportunities, please visit
