Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament


As Catholics, we believe that the Blessed Sacrament is truly the body, blood, soul and divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore we adore Him in His Eucharistic presence in the Church. Our Lord is present in the tabernacle and so we genuflect in adoration before Him when we enter the Church or cross over past the tabernacle.

We also have a service in which we expose the Blessed Sacrament for a time of adoration. At the end of this time, we receive the blessing of Christ which is known as Benediction.

At St. Mary Magdalen, we expose the Blessed Sacrament for adoration every Wednesday evening at 7pm. This is followed by Benediction.

Each year, during October, we have an extended period of adoration called the Forty Hours. During this time, the Church is open day and night for people to pray.

We normally have a procession on the feast of Corpus Christi after the evening Mass.
