In the realm of Eucharistic Adoration, prayer reaches a totally new level; it is fully universal. When we pray in the presence of the Eucharist, we are never alone. In this prayer we are no longer before a Jesus we have thought about, but before Jesus who has really given Himself to us; before Jesus who made Himself communion for us. Taken from the writings of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.

Visit the Adoration Chapel which is located in the convent of Holy Cross. Open hours: Thursday 4:00 p.m. and Friday 11:00 a.m. For information call: 612-788-4729 or 612-781-4806. Thank you.
