First Friday Devotions

February 2, 2018 @ 12:15 pm – 8:00 pm

Devotions start at 12:15pm with the Angelus prayers, the Divine Mercy chaplet, Holy Mass and Eucharistic Adoration throughout the afternoon and evening. At 6:30pm, we pray again the DM chaplet, Benediction and Holy Mass.

This Friday February 2nd is the feast of the PRESENTATION OF THE LORD, also known as CANDLEMAS. There will be a mass at 12:30 pm as usual. In the evening, Mass begins at 7:00 pm, concluding with the traditional blessing of candles.

It is also First Friday. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will follow the 12:30 pm Holy Mass. There is a sign-up sheet for Silent Adoration times, on the table by the Baptismal Font. Starting on Friday February 2nd, we encourage all those who are able, to spend some quiet time with Jesus, the Lord, in the Real Presence, exposed on the altar. Times are divided into half-hours from 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm. Please sign your name to as many times as you wish. In this way, we can ensure that the Lord always has company and we are answering his call: “could you not say awake with me one hour?” (Matt. 26:40).
