40 Hours of Adoration—Special Lenten Prayer

Friday, April 7—Sunday, April 9

Commemorating the 40 days our Lord spent in the desert, we will hold Adoration in church for 40 continuous hours (except during Mass).  We invite you to spend time in silence in the Lord’s presence and also to participate in one of the various prayer hours listed here.  Following Benediction on Sunday evening, all are invited to share in the free Simple Lenten Meal in the Parish Center.
