Eucharistic adoration throughout Olympic Games

Catholic World News - July 31, 2012

Unnoticed despite the saturation media coverage of the Olympic Games, Catholics are engaged in 24-hour adoration of the Blessed Sacrament at St. Francis of Assisi church in East London for the durations of the contests.

The perpetual adoration is part of a pastoral plan that includes hospitality centers for athletes, at St. Francis church and Westminster cathedral; the furnishing of chaplains for the Olympic village, and a program of talks for any interested parties.
