Exposition

O Sacrament Most Holy, O Sacrament Divine, all praise and all thanksgiving be every moment thine!

This weekend, according to the schedule in the Diocesan Directory, is the turn of this Parish to hold Solemn Prolonged Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. This used to be called 'Quarant Ore' - the Latin for 40 hours - for in days gone by, there would be a continuous exposition throughout the day and night (this still happens in some places).

Our exposition began after the Saturday morning Mass and continued until just before the evening Mass when it closed for the day with a period of public prayer. Exposition restarted at the end of the Sunday Morning Mass and concluded with a Holy Hour of prayer for families and vocations to the priesthood.
