Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament flows from the sacrifice of the Mass and serves to deepen our hunger for Communion with Christ and the rest of the church. The Rite concludes with the ordained minister blessing the faithful with the Blessed Sacrament.
Holy Hours are the Roman Catholic devotional tradition of spending an hour in Eucharistic Adoration in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. The bishops have created a variety of holy hours that focus our prayer to Jesus Christ on peace, life, vocations, and other topics that are at the heart of the life of the Church and the world.

At St. Andrew we are blessed to have Eucharistic Adoration in the Chapel:
This group is an international association with papal approval. Members are people who are committed to adoration of the Blessed Sacrament throughout their lives. At St. Andrew, we meet the first Saturday of each month from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. in the Chapel. All are welcome to join us in prayer. Contact: Juan Corona, [email protected], 678-914-8623.
Eucharistic Adoration Guardians
Guardians offer an hour of prayer each week before the Blessed Sacrament exposed in our Chapel. Eucharistic Adoration is an expression of our love for Jesus. Adorers experience a deeper faith and a closer relationship with Jesus during this time. Often, the peace and love felt during the adoration hour extends throughout the day. Exposition of the Sacrament occurs Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Tuesday 9:30 a.m.to 7:00 p.m. At least two guardians are needed for each hour. Please contact us if you would like to volunteer as a guardian, with a committed time slot, or as a substitute who serves at flexible times.
As Jesus said: “Come to me all of you who are weary and find life burdensome, and I will refresh you.”
