To do our part in this year of Eucharistic Revival, St. Hugh will celebrate the 40 Hours Devotion starting Sunday, December 10, to thank the Lord for his many blessings to us individually and as a community, to make reparation for those who do not believe in this great gift, and to ask Him to make us grow in Faith, be firm in Hope and fervent in Charity.
We ask all of you to participate in some aspect of St. Hugh’s 40 Hours Devotion as a sign of gratitude and commitment. The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed all day and night in the church, starting with a Solemn Opening Mass at 7 p.m. on Sunday, December 10. A plenary indulgence can be obtained for attending this Mass. On Monday, December 11, confessions will be heard from 6:30 to 9 p.m., with Mass being celebrated at 7 p.m. The Solemn Closing Mass will take place on Tuesday, December 12, as we celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. After the Mass, we will process with the Blessed Sacrament and the image of Our Lady through the streets of the Grove, as a sign of our faith and devotion to Christ present in the Eucharist.
We encourage you to commit to spend an hour of adoration with the Lord during those 40 hours. This plea especially goes out to those of you who do not regularly participate in Adoration, and in particular, we invite the men of our parish to come and adore the Lord during the night. You can sign up for your hour of Adoration using the sign-up sheets at the tables or by visiting the designated website www.signupgenius.com/go/4090D4EA9AD2AA5F94-40hour.
