Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament

I myself am the Bread of Life.  No one who comes to me shall ever be hungry, no one who believes in me shall ever thirst” (John 6:35).

The Blessed Sacrament is reserved in the first place, so that communion and viaticum may be taken to the sick and the dying. Its reservation also affords a precious opportunity for the rest of the faithful for worship and adoration of the Lord’s abiding presence

The Eucharist is: Jesus truly present - Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity.

At the moment of Consecration, during the Mass, the "gifts" of bread and wine are transformed (transubstantiated) into the actual Body and Blood of Christ, at the Altar. This means that they are not only spiritually transformed, but rather are actually (substantially) transformed into the Body and Blood of Christ. The elements retain the appearance of bread and wine, but are indeed the actual Body and Blood of Christ. This is what is meant by Real Presence: the actual, physical presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.

Each morning Our Lady’s church is open for people from the local community find sanctuary and peace amidst the business of life. Each Saturday the Blessed Sacrament is exposed (shown) from 11.30-11.55 during which confessions (Sacrament of Reconciliation) takes place. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament often takes place on Friday’s from 11.30-11.55.
