WHAT IS “40 OF HOURS ADORATION”?
This is a time within the Lenten season when our parish community takes turns to spend “40 Hours” in prayer before the Lord in Church (Adoration). We ask God’s blessing upon ourselves, our families, and our community.
All are invited to stop by at least once during our “40 Hours” of prayer!
- Sunday: following 11:30 am Mass until 7:30 pm
- Monday: following 8:00 am Mass until 7:30 pm
- Tuesday: following 8:00 am Mass until 7:30 pm
Benediction Closing Prayers and Homily each evening at 7:30 pm with the newly-ordained guest priest, Fr. Matthew Brody.
If you can Sign Up to “cover” a time slot, this helps us ensure that the Blessed Sacrament is never left unattended. If you cannot sign up for a spot, you are still very much welcome to come by on your own schedule, and stay for as long as you like!
WHAT IF I CAN’T SIGN UP FOR A TIME SLOT – CAN I STILL ATTEND?
Absolutely! You are very welcome to come and go as needed on your own schedule – some people stop by for just a few moments, while others stay for a full hour. While volunteers to “cover” time slots are very helpful to us, if your schedule does not allow this we still hope to see you stopping by as you are able!
WHAT DO I DO DURING MY TIME SLOT???
This is a quiet time for prayer and reflection in front of the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ. There are no “rules” to how or what you pray during your time in Church. Many people bring their Bible, a Rosary, a holy book or a prayer journal to help them focus on Jesus. Even “just sitting there” counts!
WHAT IF ALL THE TIME SLOTS ARE TAKEN?
Our goal is for LOTS of people to be in Church at all times. If your preferred time slot is taken, please come anyway or consider taking another time slot that is empty! We are asking for 2 people as a minimum to assure there is attendance at all times.
God is waiting for you with love!
