"Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. Christ’s great love for us was shown when he was crucified on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and give us eternal life. He loves us without limit, and offers Himself to us in the holy sacrament of the Eucharist. Can we not give Jesus a few minutes of love and adoration in return?" – Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.
On the Feast of St. James, July 25, 1978, Archbishop James J. Byrne blessed the chapel where Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament was begun the following day. Since then, Adoration has had grown from one adorer per hour to two, with two programs running concurrently: Perpetual Adoration, and the Perpetual Rosary. The Power of Prayer is currently housed in the previous convent on the St. Anthony’s campus. The chapel is open 24/7, and anyone is welcome to stop in for as long (or short) as they want.
Every Wednesday a pro-life Mass is offered @ 2:15 pm on the Mass side of the chapel. All are welcome. In addition to the Adoration Chapel, the Power of Prayer sponsors the Pilgrim Virgin Home Visitation Program. See sidebar for more information.
The Power of Prayer is located at 1860 St. Ambrose St., Dubuque, Iowa. It is two doors away from St. Anthony's Catholic Church.
