As part of the preparation for the diocese’s Golden Jubilee in 2024, parishes throughout the region are holding the Forty Hours Devotion, a special exposition of the Blessed Sacrament over a period of three days for an approximate total of 40 hours. The number 40 and period of three days is a remembrance of the 40 hours from Jesus’ burial until His resurrection. St. Veronica’s 40 Hours Devotion will take place during the three days leading up to the celebration of our parish feast day on July 12th.
Father Kleinmann will open the Devotion Monday, July 10th with 7:30 pm Holy Mass followed by Exposition at 8:30 pm. Adoration will continue for the next 40 hours, pausing only for regularly scheduled Masses. We will have an additional Mass at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, July 11th. Confessions will be available both Tuesday and Wednesday mornings beginning at 11:00 am. We conclude the Devotion and celebrate our St. Veronica feast day Wednesday evening with a light reception in the parish hall. See the full schedule in the July 2nd bulletin.
