Eucharistic Adoration

The worship of the Eucharist outside of Mass is strictly linked to the celebration of the Eucharistic Sacrifice, the Mass, and is of inestimable value for the life of the Church. The Blessed Sacrament is reserved at New Melleray Abbey in both the monastic church and the infirmary chapel for the benefit of the infirm brothers, and also for private prayer and adoration. Each Sunday before Vespers we enjoy a period of silent adoration of the Blessed Sacrament exposed on the altar of the abbey church. Sunday Vespers concludes with benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
