First Friday Adoration

This First Friday Adoration is 24-hour continuous exposition of the Blessed Sacrament by parishioners of St. Victor's parish who sign up to take turn adoring the presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. The adoration starts after the 8:00 a.m. Mass on first Friday in the small chapel and concludes with a benediction on the next day - Saturday morning - in the main altar. This devotion which appeals to a good number of the faithful and recommended by Pope Paul is usually for the reparation to God for past sins.

The devotion is also a response to Jesus' plea in the Garden of Gethsemane, to "come pray with me one hour?".

The consistent belief of the Church is that Christ is present in the Eucharist body and soul. During the adoration the faithful may meditate, read the Scriptures, read spiritual books, spend some quiet time or pay in any manner that deepens their love for God. It is customary to show reverence to the Blessed Sacrament by genuflecting on both knees, but health may prevent one from doing such a practice. Adorers are especially needed during the hours from midnight till 6:00 AM. Commitment to a specific time each month allows for more permanent and continuing program. To sign up for a particular hour or for more information contact the Parish Office: (408) 251-7055  (Email: Click Here).
