MOBILE — Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration has begun in Mobile and St. Ignatius Parish Pastor Fr. Bry Shields said that’s a “wonderful blessing” for the city.
The Blessed Sacrament Chapel at St. Ignatius was opened to perpetual Adoration on Dec. 8 following Mass and Eucharistic Procession. While the chapel is at St. Ignatius, more than 400 people from about 25 parishes have committed time to man the chapel throughout the week.
It is open for perpetual Adoration every hour of the week, with the exception of 9-11 a.m. Sundays when Mass is held.
“It will be a wonderful blessing for us, for our whole parish, but also for the whole city,” Fr. Shields said in his homily. “I’m grateful for the over 400 volunteers who committed themselves to man the chapel every hour of every day.”
While many have registered for an hour a week to spend with the Lord, the chapel is open to all.
“The chapel is for you and is for me. You don’t have to commit to an hour to come. It is open for you to come at any time.”
