Forty Hours Devotion

"The most brilliant ideas come from meeting God face to face (at adoration). The Holy Spirit that presided at the Incarnation is the best atmosphere for illumination." - Ven. Fulton Sheen

Forty Hours Devotion is a special time for our parish every year. It is a time for each of us to come before the Blessed Sacrament and to thank God for his graces, to make reparation to Him for our past sins, to pray for the sick, and to beg God's protection of our nation.
