Eucharistic Adoration Coming to St Edward Each Thursday
Evening through Friday Evening During Lent!
"The Church and the world have great need of Eucharistic adoration. Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration and contemplation full of faith. And let us be ready to make reparation for the great faults and crimes of the world. May our adoration never cease."
(St. Pope John Paul II, Dominicae Cenae: Letter to Priests, Holy Thursday, 1980)
Let our parish community answer the call to prayer, devotion and sacrifice during Lent in this Year of Mercy. St. Edward will have Exposition of the Eucharist for 24 Hours each week during Lent. Eucharistic Adoration will begin each Thursday at 7 PM with Evening Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours and will continue through the night and all day on Friday, ending with Evening Prayer at 7 PM on Friday.
For the Parish Community to answer this call, each hour must have three or more people committed to be in the chapel in prayer for each hour. We will begin Thursday February 11 and finish Friday March 17 at 7pm.
Please commit and sign up for a specific hour to come and pray during this time. Sign up sheets will be available in each of St. Edward Catholic Church's ministries and will also be available after Mass starting the weekend masses of January 30/31.
An online sign up form can be accessed here.
Please prayerfully consider spending an hour with our Lord during this 24 hours.

Cardinal DiNardo has decreed that 8 Churches in our Archdiocese will serve as sites of pilgrimage during the Jubilee year of Mercy. The Jubilee Indulgence may be gained by anyone who passes through the designated Holy Door at any of these 8 sites. To gain the indulgence, either for oneself or someone who has died, one must this pass through a Holy Door, say the Profession of Faith, pray for the Holy Father and his intentions, and go to a celebration of the Eucharist and the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
For more information on the Jubilee Year of Mercy visit the Archdiocesan website at www.archgh.org/yearofmercy.
