Kinvara Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament re-starting in September

After the Summer break, the weekly day of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in Kinvara will re-commence on Thursday 7th September 2023.

Adoration takes place in the Adoration Chapel at St Joseph’s Church, Kinvara on Thursdays, from after the 10am Mass until 7.30pm. All are welcome to come in for a while to pray in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament during the day.

However, in order to respectfully have Adoration, we need to have people present with the Blessed Sacrament at all times while the Blessed Sacrament is exposed. Therefore, we also need some people to commit to a weekly hour at the Adoration. Thank you to those who do this each week. But, we now need more people. Please consider if this is a commitment you could make. If you would like to make this commitment, please contact Fr Hugh or Bina Mitchell, the coordinator of the list.

Refurbishment of the Adoration Chapel was completed a year ago, and so it is warm and comfortable at all times of the year, and noise from outside has been excluded also. There is a hepa filter machine working very quietly throughout the time of Adoration to protect from any risk of Covid infection.
