40 Hours / 40 Horas

Devotion:

The Forty Hours Devotion is a custom in the Church that takes its name from forty hours of prayer before the Lord present in the Blessed Sacrament exposed upon the altar.  The period of time is initiated with a Mass of Exposition and concluded with a Mass of Reposition.  With the time between the two Masses, there is approximately forty hours of adoration, recalling the period of time that our Lord spent in the tomb.  For more information about 40 Hours, you can read the article at New Advent 

 

Adorers and Security:

It is necessary that there be at least one person present at all times of exposition.  You can commit to an hour by clicking the picutre above.  In addition to adorers, we are looking for people to commit to overnight hours to serve as security, making sure that the church remains safe.  It will be their responsibility to keep an eye open if anyone wandered into the building to cause trouble.  As unlikley as it is that anything would happen, we would rather be safe than sorry.  Combined with new security cameras that will be operational by the time of the devotion, the chruch will be a holy and safe space to visit, even in the overnight hours.
