  Eucharistic adoration - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Eucharistic adoration is a practice in the Roman Catholic and some Anglican Churches, in which the Blessed Sacrament is exposed to and adored by the faithful.
In a parish, this is usually done by volunteer parishioners; in a monastery or convent, it is done by the resident monks or nuns.
Adoration is a sign of devotion to and worship of Jesus Christ, who is believed by many Christians to be present in the consecrated host, represented by hosts or bread.

 USCCB - (Liturgy) - Perpetual Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament
Perpetual exposition of the Blessed Sacrament is a devotion and practice which is permitted to those religious communities that have it as an integral part of their communal life and to pious associations of the laity which have received official recognition.
If a pious association of the laity, which has perpetual exposition as a part of its constitution, is established within a parish, the activity of that association should be seen as separate from that of the parish, although all members of the parish are free to participate in it.
If for some good reason perpetual exposition must take place in a parish church, it should be in a chapel distinct from the body of the church so as not to interfere with the normal activities of the parish or its daily liturgical celebrations.
