40 Hours Eucharistic Devotion 2023

Written on .

The Forty Hours Devotion is a special 3 Days of prayer made before the Blessed Sacrament in solemn exposition. Traditionally, this would last into the night for an all-night vigil. The Forty Hours Devotion can be seen almost like a parish mini-retreat or mission in which the faithful are invited to come spend time with the Lord.

Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish will celebrate this special devotion Sunday June 11, Monday June 12, and Tuesday June 13.

Each night during the celebration of Evening Prayer before Benediction, a guest preacher offers a homily or reflection. This year, we welcome Fr. Joseph Petrone, Parochial Vicar of Epiphany of the Lord Parish, Meadville, PA. Father Joe will be preaching on the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Immaculate Heart of Mary, and the Chaste Heart of Joseph.

The schedule of the three days is as follows:

  • Sunday, June 11
    • Adoration following 10am Mass
    • Corpus Christi Eucharistic Procession at 2:15pm
    • Evening Prayer and Benediction at 7pm
  • Monday, June 12
    • Adoration following 8am Mass
    • Evening Prayer and Benediction at 7pm
  • Tuesday, June 13
    • Adoration following 8am mass
    • Evening Prayer, Eucharistic Procession in Church, and Benediction at 7pm

Volunteers are needed to cover all of the hours that the Eucharist is exposed. Please consider taking an hour with Jesus during these three days of prayer! Volunteers can signup on our website by clicking the button below:
