St. Luke Blessed Sacrament Chapel
The Perpetual Adoration Chapel of the North Deanery
Dedicated September 28, 1997, by Archbishop Daniel M. Buechlein.
The Blessed Sacrament Chapel was established in thanksgiving for all our beloved priests. Eurcharist Adoration is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for visitors and those with committed hours.
Adoration Makes Our Faith Visible
"The Most Holy Eucharist is the real and substantial Body, Blood, Soul and Divinty of Jesus Christ present under the appearances of bread and wine. After the Consecration of the Mass, only the physical characteristics of bread and wine remain; now the substance on the altar is Jesus Christ. Each particle of the Sacred Host and each drop of the Precious Blood contains the entire Jesus--the very same Messiah Who lived thirty-three years on earth and Who now lives risen and glorified in Paradise... Since the Redeemer, Who is God, is really present in the Holy Eucharist, the Blessed Sacrament deserves the same worship and adoration as that given to the Lord of the Universe."
- Msgr. Charles M. Mangan
The late John Joseph Cardinal Carberry of St. Louis suggested we spend our time with Jesus in:
ADORATION... pondering who God is, who am I
CONTRITION... sorrow for sins, mine and the world's
THANKSGIVING... for blessings and gifts of God
SUPPLICATION... petitioning God for needs
