2024 Quarant’ore at the Cathedral

corpus christi - adoremus

From 5th to 8th June, our Parish Community will host Quarant’ore – an ancient Church practice consisting of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament for 40 hours.

Taking place at our temporary church, this event is a great opportunity to deepen our prayer life, as encouraged by Pope Francis in this Year of Prayer in preparation for the Jubilee Year 2025.

The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed and there will be adoration throughout the day. The temporary cathedral church will be open to all who want to spend some prayerful time with the Lord.

Each day, prayers will be offered for a special intention, as indicated in the schedule. Intending participants are kindly requested to indicate the times they plan to attend, by signing the “watching list” in the church.

All are welcome to join in this sacred moment of prayer, reflection and spiritual renewal.

In preparation for the 2025 “Pilgrims of Hope” Jubilee, Pope Francis has designated 2024 as a Year of Prayer. During this year, we are encouraged to deepen our commitment to prayer and to accompany others in their own prayer life, as well as going back to basics to reflect on how and why we pray.
