40 HOURS OF ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT

To prepare for the Feast of Pentecost- The Birthday of the Church – we are holding 40 hours of continuous unbroken prayer, beginning at 5pm on Thursday 21 May and ending on Saturday 23 May at 9am. I warmly exhort and encourage parishioners to avail of this wonderful opportunity. “Come away to a quiet place and rest awhile”. A list for names is displayed in the Church porch to allow you to come for 1 hour at a particular time. DO PLEASE MAKE THIS SPECIAL EFFORT to commit to a particular time – and be there at that time. The Blessed Sacrament must never be left unattended without the presence of at least one person. Click here to view poster Adoration Poster
