24 Hours for the Lord

Pope Francis has invited every parish around the world to open its doors for 24 hours on March 4th and 5th, so that the faithful might encounter Jesus Christ anew in the Sacrament of Confession and Eucharistic Adoration.

The Lenten initiative is called “24 Hours for the Lord.” It is intended also to be a time of reflection and prayer, an opportunity to speak with a priest, and a chance to rediscover—or perhaps discover for the first time—the great mercy at the heart of the Catholic Faith.

At St. Patrick Parish we will begin these 24 hours at the 9:00am Mass on Friday morning, March 4th. The Mass will be followed by 23 hours of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

9:30AM Friday, March 4 – 9:00AM, Saturday, March 5

Adorers are needed throughout the 24 Hours. Please see the sign-up schedule in the Church vestibule and commit to spend an hour with our Lord.

“Confession is the most effective sign of how God is merciful… because mercy is to love until there is forgiveness.” – Pope Francis

We will pray, in communion with the whole church, asking the Lord, “Make our hearts like yours.”
