The Montgomery Area Perpetual Adoration Chapel located behind Our Lady Queen of Mercy Church is kept open twenty-four hours a day seven days a week, by people like you who love Jesus and seek to praise, honor, and give glory to Him in the Most Blessed Sacrament. More information on becoming a committed adorer or prayer partner is available HERE.
Our Adoration Chapel, in the former chapel of the Sisters of Loretto, was (dedicated) on February 6, 1994. Ever since that day, adorers have kept Our Lord who is exposed on the altar in the Blessed Sacrament, company. From near and far, young and old come here to recollect, give thanks, praise, adore and experience the deep peace that the bodily presence of Jesus showers on us. After all, “Jesus can never be outdone in generosity!” The time we spend with Him yields graces and favors beyond our expectations. And yet, we would give Him this honor simply because we love Him and because He richly deserves it. Here in this chapel, our love for Him is expresses and grows deeper and wider with each passing moment. Our desires, both spiritual and temporal are tenderly heard and answered. Our wounds are healed, our faith is strengthened, and our hope is restored. “We sit and look Him and He looks back at us.” This is what we owe Our Savior so that His great “thirst” for our love may be satisfied. Our time and our attention is a gift that He so ardently desires. He waits here for us, a “willing prisoner of love.”
We hope you will visit Jesus in our chapel and perhaps you too, will find yourself drawn to adoration of Our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

What wonderful majesty! What stupendous condescension! O sublime humility! That the Lord of the whole universe, God and the Son of God, should humble Himself like this under the form of a little bread, for our salvation.”
“…In this world I cannot see the Most High Son of God with my own eyes, except for His Most Holy Body and Blood.”
St. Francis of Assisi
