40 Hours Devotion: Parish Bulletin--3-22-15
As we gather to celebrate the 5th Sunday of Lent, we are only one week away from our Lenten 40 Hour Devotion. I am excited to fill in some of the details now:
· We will begin at 7:00pm on Friday, March 27th. Fr. Drew Braun will be speaking about the power of Eucharistic Adoration. (Previous speaker Kevin Pilon is unable to come until Saturday—he and his family close on a house on Friday!)
· Around 7:30pm we will transition into our time of Adoration, praise and worship and confession. Formal reposition of the Blessed Sacrament will take place and we will have five to six priests hearing confessions. (This is your time to get to confession with a visiting priest!) We will also have praise and worship to enhance our time of prayer.
· Scheduled adorers and greeters will begin after confessions have been completed Friday evening. Adoration will continue until 10:00am Sunday morning.
· Saturday afternoon (March 28th) will feature our regularly scheduled confessions (4:00pm) and Mass (5:00pm). Light refreshments will follow Mass and Kevin Pilon will give a talk on Theology of the Body at 6:30pm. Adoration will resume after its completion.
· At 10:00am on Sunday morning (March 29th) we will conclude the 40 Hours with formal Benediction and Divine Praises. Kevin Pilon will be playing music for both this and our 10:30am Mass.
Please sign up for an hour (both adorers and greeters are needed)! As the Church will be open throughout the weekend, please stop by any time to pay a visit to Jesus Christ. I pray this 40 Hours will prepare our parishes for a dynamic holy week and Easter Triduum.
