The 40 Hours begins

This morning the annual 40 Hours devotion began. Over four days members of the parish join in continuous prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, exposed in the monstrance. This is an important time of growth in the parish, as we ask God to deepen our faith in the Eucharist and renew our commitment to Him. Each day the full Rosary is being prayed; there are Holy Hours and Morning Prayer, sung Vespers and Compline. Most of the time there is opportunity for private prayer. A full timetable is available on last Sunday's parish newsletter, available here.
