“Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth.” -St. Teresa of Calcutta
For those of you who open and close the chapel, the following will be helpful to you!
THE BLESSED SACRAMENT RESIDES IN THE MONSTRANCE IN A LUNA. THE ENTIRE ROUND PIECE FITS INTO THE MONSTRANCE. This is removable from the back of the Monstrance. There is a “catch” that slides and the entire round luna can be removed. The luna is a little heavy, so please be careful.
If you are opening: Please remove the luna with the host from the tabernacle and place it in the monstrance. You may turn the monstrance sideways to make it easier to install the luna. Then simply turn the face toward you. You may either place the tabernacle on the floor next to the cabinet or leave it next to the monstrance. It is a little heavy, so please be careful.
If you are closing: Please remove the luna with the Monstance and place it in the tabernacle. You may turn the Monstarance and place it in the tabernacle. You may turn the Monstance sideways in order to make it easier to remove the luna. Please close the door of the tabernacle and turn the key. Leave the light on and lock the chapel when you leave.
Adoration Chapel Guidelines for Adorers
When your committed time is ended and your replacement has not arrived, please place the Blessed Sacrament back in the Tabernacle before you leave. When the next adorer arrives place the Blessed Sacrament back in the Monstrance. This procedure should also be used when you have to leave because of an emergency, etc. You do not have to be an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist to do so. Many thanks for your support of the chapel. May the Lord continue to bless you. Please do not remove this notice. Please remember Jesus is present here. Please carry out your duties with the reverence He deserves.
