When Christ is exposed in adoration, must there be someone there?

I am an adorer for the past 10 years, I recently went to a new parish where there is Eucharistic Adoration from 7 am - 7 pm. I have gone into the chapel (where Christ is exposed) on many occasions and He is alone. I stay until someone else arrives and is planning on staying but I am about to start a new job and will be unable to stay if necessary. I’m not sure what to do. This hurts my heart and I don’t know how to approach the parish priest regarding this issue.


The Blessed Sacrament should never be left unattended when it is exposed. It could easily be desecrated. As much as such information could mean the end of such exposition, you need to infom the priest.
