Adoration Chapel at St. Vincent de Paul Church is accessible 24/7.
The front door of the church is always open and the door to the chapel has a padlock. If you want to stop by the chapel to pray, please contact one of the people who will provide you with the access code. We do not yet have enough people to assure that there is always someone in adoration. When nobody is in the chapel, we close the doors of the tabernacle. Perhaps you want to make a commitment to regular adoration for a particular time; if so please call one of the Adoration Committee Team members:
Paula Andrikopoulos (508) 212-8528
Andrew Costantino (508) 930-6198
John Costantino (781) 264-3949
Doreen George (774) 254-2234
This also applies to anyone wanting to make a weekly commitment to visit Jesus. Please do not use the chapel when Mass or Exposition is on in the main Church.

All Are Welcome
Located inside St. Vincent de Paul Parish's church, on 71 Linden St. in Attleboro, MA, our chapel is a quiet and peaceful place. It is perpetually available, meaning it is available all day and night for you to stop in to visit Jesus. All are welcome to come and spend time with Jesus who is truly present in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
Bring Me your burdens.
Jesus said: “Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Mt 11:28-30)
“When the Sisters are exhausted, up to their eyes in work; when all seems to go awry, they spend an hour in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. This practice has never failed to bear fruit: they experience peace and strength.”
~Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
A security code is needed to enter the chapel. Do not let this deter you from visiting Jesus. If you do not have the code, you simply call one of the team members and they will give it to you (names and numbers are listed above). The adoration team is a dedicated group of adorers who are happy to share and explain more about just what their devotion entails.
We are always looking to add Adorers, so if you are willing to give one hour a week to Jesus, please let us know. We ask you to prayerfully consider signing up for 1 hour per week to pray before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. You can choose any hour, day or night that is good for you, or you can pick an hour that does not have anyone scheduled.
To sign up for Adoration you may call one of the team members or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
**Please note, during the celebration of Mass at St. Vincent de Paul Parish, the Eucharist will not be exposed in the Adoration Chapel. You are welcome to join us at Mass.
Eucharistic Adoration is adoring the True Presence of our Lord Jesus Christ - His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity - in the Holy Eucharist. Because we believe that Christ is truly made present in the consecration of the Eucharist, we give the Blessed Sacrament the same honor and reverence accorded to Christ himself.
“Could you not watch one hour with me?” – Matthew 26:40
St. Alphonsus Liguori wrote:
Of all devotions, that of adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the greatest after the Sacraments, the one dearest to God and the one most helpful to us. The Eucharist is a priceless treasure: By not only celebrating the Eucharist, but also praying before It outside of Mass, we are enabled to make contact with the very wellsprings of Grace…"
A Holy Hour is the devotion of spending an hour in Eucharistic Adoration. Mother Theresa of Calcutta made a Holy Hour every day and encouraged others to follow her example. One may obtain a plenary indulgence for making a Holy Hour.
During a Holy Hour, one simply contemplates the mystery of the Word made flesh (John 1:14).
It is said that when the 19th century French priest, St. Jean Vianney, was asked what he said to Jesus in Eucharist Adoration, he replied, “Nothing, I look at Him and He looks at me.”
The following prayers and devotions may help spark contemplation or conversation with Christ:
- Reading Scripture
- Praying the Rosary or Divine Mercy Chaplet
