Hispanic child devotedly praying to his Creator in Heaven. Christian worship and relations

Weekly Guided Children’s Eucharistic Adoration is here at Ave Maria Parish!


All children of Ave Maria are invited to come and adore our Eucharistic Lord Jesus! We meet every Monday from 7-8pm, ending with Benediction. All teens and adults are also welcome to join us.

Our Director of Religious Education, Becky Hampton, and creator of, Jean Prather, are our guides as we make our visits with Jesus, truly present in the Most Blessed Sacrament.


“I urge priests, religious and lay people to continue and redouble their efforts to teach the younger generations the meaning and value of Eucharistic adoration and devotion. How will young people be able to know the Lord if they are not introduced to the mystery of His presence? Like the young Samuel, by learning the words of the prayer of the heart, they will be closer to the Lord, who will accompany them in their spiritual and human growth.”  

Saint John Paul II
