When we sin, we turn away from God and reject the grace provided for us by the Cross of Jesus Christ. He, however, does not turn from us; rather, He reaches out and attempts to draw us back to Him. We invite all to come to Christ in a special way as we revive our parish’s tradition of the Forty Hours Devotion. Beginning Thursday, April 5, at the 5:45 p.m. Mass and continuing until Saturday, April 7, at the 9 a.m. Mass, the Most Blessed Sacrament will be exposed on the altar for 40 Hours for Holy Rosary. Mass will be celebrated four times during this period, with confession being available before each Mass. Click here to see the full schedule and to sign up for an hour (or more) of Adoration. There will be a pitch-in dinner in Priori Hall at 6:30 p.m. Friday, April 6, followed by a talk on Divine Mercy in the church at 7:30 p.m. Click here to sign up for the dinner. Call the parish office for more information.
