Summit is a night of adoration, confession, and worship, organized by Catholic Christian Outreach (CCO). When seminarian Daniel Jodoin, who was involved in CCO, arrived in Edmonton he felt the city lacked that kind of event and helped start Adoremus.
“It was a time for young people to get together and just adore the Lord. When I came to Edmonton, I really missed going to Summit and my involvement with CCO," said Jodoin.

In response, a group of seminarians initiated Adoremus, which provides young adults the opportunity to adore the Lord, as well as grow in their knowledge of Jesus, and meet with others desiring to do the same.

Adoremus is a Latin word that means “Let us adore.” That is exactly what they do, in their mission to spread love and devotion for Christ in the Eucharist. The project involves Eucharistic Adoration, Confession, Scripture, Benediction and music. It started in October, and has continued monthly at St. Joseph’s Basilica.

“It’s a blessing in many other cities that I wanted to bring in our own way to Edmonton,” said Jodoin.
