In our most recent religion chapter, we also learned, Jesus rose, glorious and immortal, the third day after his Death. The children learn that by his Resurrection, Jesus destroyed death and restored the life of grace. They celebrate Jesus’ victory, realizing that he frees them from their fears and gives them his peace. They are made aware that death is the gateway to eternal life, and they are given guidance in coping with the death of a loved one. They are encouraged to observe Sunday in a spirit of celebration as a commemoration of the Resurrection. We learned that our church will receive a new Paschal candle at the Easter Vigil. The candle is lit during the Sundays of the Easter season and then lit for Baptisms. At a funeral the candle is lit as a sign that a person has died in Christ and shares his new life in a fuller way.


What is Adoration?

Eucharistic Adoration is when we spend time in prayer with Jesus in the form of the

Blessed Sacrament. You can pray in any Catholic Church or Chapel for a short

amount of time or a long amount of time. Jesus could be in a Tabernacle or a

Monstrance while we are praying.

What do you do during Adoration?

* Talk to Jesus in your heart about how you love Him, what you are sorry for, ways you want to thank Him, and for

things you and other people need

* Sit quietly and look at Jesus, listening to Him

*Pray a Rosary or the Chaplet of Divine Mercy

* Read a story from the Bible or the life of a Saint

*Write or draw a prayer to Jesus

* Say prayers that you have memorized, like the Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, etc.

* Sing a song to Jesus

* Read a Bible story

*Listen to a priest teach or lead the group in prayer

Do we sit? Stand? Kneel?

* We always kneel during Exposition and Benediction.

Kneeling a way to show honor and devotion to Jesus as King of the Universe.

*We stand while we sing Holy God We Praise Thy Name at the end of a Holy Hour.

* If you leave the spot you are sitting during Adoration, you should genuflect on two knees and bow your head

instead of genuflecting on your right knee like normal.

* During the Holy Hour, kneeling is always appropriate, but it is also ok to sit while you are praying.

St. Michael Church has Adorations every Thursday, from 8:30 am to 8:30 pm in the lower chapel.


The video link really explains them to children.


"Blessed are the poor in spirit, 

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 

Blessed are they who mourn, 

for they shall be comforted. 

Blessed are the meek, 

for they shall inherit the earth. 

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, 

for they shall be satisfied. 

Blessed are the merciful, 

for they shall obtain mercy. 

Blessed are the pure of heart, 

for they shall see God. 

Blessed are the peacemakers, 

for they shall be called children of God. 

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, 

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." 

Gospel of St. Matthew 5:3-10
