From a reader:
Is it proper to hold Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in a classroom at the high school when 30 feet out the back door is the church and our Perpetual Adoration Chapel, where the Blessed Sacrament is exposed 24/7? Previous pastor didn’t allow it, current pastor does.
That just doesn’t sound right, does it. Unless…
I assume that the “classroom” has been more or less permanently converted into a chapel. In that case, it may be okay to do so.
But you say there is already a chapel for Perpetual Adoration….
It sounds to me as if the priest there is trying make sure that students and teachers in the school have access to the Blessed Sacrament exposed, so that they don’t have to leave the building. That is laudable.
Provided that the classroom has been converted into a chapel, I don’t think such a thing would be forbidden. The only problem I could foresee is having exposition in two places on the same campus. That sounds odd to me. Still, provided that everything is handled reverently and there is amble protection for the Blessed Sacrament, and It is not alone for long periods, I cannot see why there could not be exposition in a school chapel.
