All through the night - what? Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
Over Friday Sept 9th and Sat 10th a belated Quarant Ore was held in the parish. It began with a Votive Mass of the Most Holy Eucharist at Noon. Later at 3pm the Divine Mercy Chaplet was recited and later still, at 7pm a Eucharistc Holy Hour was held in which prayers for vocations, the Pope and families were prominent.
The adoration of our Blessed Lord in this most beautiful Sacrament continued all through the night, and someone was always present 'watching' with our Lord. Half hour slots were filled and prayer was constantly offered. In the morning, as usual on Saturdays, Holy Mass was celebrated at 10am and Confessions were available until noon. Later in the afternoon, at 4pm the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary were recited and the Quarant Ore ended at 5.30pm prior to the Vigil Mass.
