The Eucharistic Adoration chapel in the basilica is dedicated to the English Martyrs St. Thomas Becket, St. John Fisher and St. Thomas More. These Saints were chosen because of their dedication to the teachings of the Roman Pontiff. We express our commitment to the Holy See, especially in the midst of global assaults against religious liberty.
Adoration – spending time with the Lord – gives us the peace that the world cannot give. Adoration is a powerful time of prayer and healing. It is a time of relaxing with Jesus. Adoration is a weekly routine to be in touch with Jesus who loves us and wants to hear our requests as God’s own adopted children. Adoration is peace and tranquility – closeness to Jesus that cannot be described. The Holy Eucharist is exposed for Adoration in the chapel every Wednesday and Friday from 8:15 am – 7 :00 pm.
The name and coat of arms of each of the three Saints are displayed above the windows in the chapel.
