SACRAMENT OF PENANCE (CONFESSION)
The Blessed Sacrament is reserved both for the Communion of the sick and those unable to join in the Sunday Eucharist, and also for adoration by the faithful. The Blessed Sacrament Chapel is open continuously for private adoration and quiet personal prayer. It is accessible through the nave during the day, and via the south doors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Rite of Exposition provides an opportunity for solemn communal prayer in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. Each Thursday, the Blessed Sacrament is exposed following the 8:30am Mass throughout the day. A “Holy Hour”, beginning at 7pm invites prayer for a particular need of the Church or the world, and includes the sung celebration of Vespers (Evening Prayer) at 7:30pm. The day of Exposition and the Holy Hour concludes with Benediction at 8pm.
