Join us to begin the Jubilee Year of Mercy!
FRIDAY NOV. 20 TO SUNDAY NOV. 22
Every year we have Forty Hours Devotion, which is a traditional devotion celebrated at the end of the liturgical year. It is forty hours of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament to thank God for the blessings of the past year and to ask the Lord to bless the year to come. This year we have invited a speaker to teach us about God’s mercy. This priest is part of an order whose whole charism is to spread the revelation of God’s mercy toward the world. The Church has declared a Jubilee Year of Mercy beginning on December 8, attending these talks will be a great way of preparing for the year to come. We hope you can join us; all are welcome.
You can sign up to pray in Christ’s real presence for one or more of the forty hours that Jesus will exposed on the altar of our church. Just click on this link:
