This morning we began our annual "40 Hours" devotion, a crucial part of the life of any parish.

The Blessed Sacrament is exposed on the altar for adoration and quiet prayer over a period of 40 Hours, stretching over 40 days, giving us the opportunity to pray in silence before the Lord, deepening our awareness of His presence in the Eucharist and teaching us the importance of stillness before Him. The vast majority of the time is spent in silent prayer, but there are also some Holy Hours and other public prayers each day. You can see a full timetable for the 40 Hours on the parish newsletter: click here.
