Saint Katharine Drexel Adoration Chapel

Dedicated in 2003, the Saint Katharine Drexel Shrine at Saint Bede the Venerable Parish is home to our Perpetual Adoration Chapel.
This sacred space which houses the very Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. Through the generous donations of parishioners, a new elegant Exposition Tabernacle has arrived from Spain. It is especially designed for Adoration Chapels. The Exposition Tabernacle has shutters that can be closed if no one is present for adoration, and re-opened when another adorer is present.
The Adoration Chapel, adjacent to the Drexel Center is open to all from 7:00am until 9:00pm.
A system of security will go into effect from 9:00pm to 7:00am each day. During that time period, only members of the Adoration Society who commit to the late night and early morning hours for adoration will know the combination to the door lock. Therefore,  from 7:00am until 9:00pm, the entrance will be open to all. 
Daily Masses at 6:30am are now being celebrated in the Lower Chapel. The 9:00am Masses are celebrated in the Upper Church.
If any members of the Adoration Society have any questions please e-mail

Our Risen Savior Jesus Christ, fully present in the Blessed Sacrament, is waiting there for you. He is not looking to judge, but to heal! His arms are opened wide to give us His Merciful Love, which is beyond all understanding.
The St. Bede Adoration Society is always looking for new adorers to commit to one hour of adoration each week or to become a prayer partner (two hours a month). You do not have to be a member of the St. Bede Adoration Society to visit the Chapel.
