“The Eucharist is astonishing. God himself wants to nourish us. God himself wants to feed us spiritually. God wants to dwell in you.”
Fifteen years ago on August 1st, 1998, St. Julien's Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Chapel opened its doors. It was originally located in St. Columban's Parish Hall, followed by the former Marguerite Bourgeoys Centre. It is currently located at St. Peter's (entrance is at the North East part of the building).
The Chapel was named after St. Peter Julian Eymard, a priest from France who lived in the 19th century. St. Peter Julian, who had a tremendous love for Jesus present in the Blessed Sacrament, began an order called the Priests of the Blessed Sacrament. He also founded an order of Sisters, called the Servants of the Blessed Sacrament.
There are approximately 200 committed adorers who cover the 168 hours in a week. These adorers make it possible for the Chapel to be open 24 hours a day 7 days a week. In any given week an additional 300 to 600 visitors will drop in for a visit with our Eucharistic Lord.
Come and experience this "TREASURE" in our midst!

The Chapel is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week and serves the entire Diocese.
Everyone is welcome at the Chapel. To gain access, simply ring the bell and the adorer on duty will be happy to let you in.
There is a 'sign-in' book for regular adorers and visitors. There is also a binder containing "Favours Requested" and "Prayers Answered". The entries testify both to the burdened hearts who come with faith and hope to seek help at the feet of Jesus. They are also a testament to the many prayers answered, the gratitude expressed and the peace and serenity experienced.
