Eucharistic Adoration gaining momentum among the youth

The Diocesan English Youth (DEY) moves ahead with its monthly adoration nights on every first Tuesday of the Month in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Wanchai.

On July 22, the Adoration team brought our ministry to St. Benedict’s Church in Shatin. We wanted to give those who aren’t able to attend the monthly Adoration at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Wanchai a chance to share in the experience and to say thank you to St. Benedict’s parishioners for their hospitality at last year’s DEY Pilgrim Church mass.

It was a truly blessed evening; not only did many English speaking young adults come to spend time with the Lord, but around one hundred newly baptized from St. Benedict’s Chinese community were also on hand to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. We were especially grateful for the chance to welcome the newest members of our faith family and to pray together before the Blessed Sacrament.

Once again, the evening was a team effort, and we extend a special thanks to St. Benedict’s, who consistently receive DEY with open arms and open hearts! Though it is the Adoration team’s first time on tour as it were, we hope to visit more parishes in Kowloon and the New Territories.
