40 Hours Devotion

November 3rd thru 5th

“Indeed, the Eucharist is God’s response to the deepest hunger of the human heart, the hunger for authentic life, because in the Eucharist Christ himself is truly in our midst to nourish, console and sustain us on our journey.”  – Pope Francis

What is the Forty Hours Devotion?
Forty Hours Devotion comes from the 40 hours that Christ’s body traditionally rested in the tomb. 40 is a significant number in the Bible, often tied to trials and/or suffering: the Israelites wandered in the desert for 40 years, and Christ was tempted in the desert for 40 days prior to the start of his ministry. Jesus will be present in the church, and we invite you to sign up to spend an hour with our Lord during this devotion.
