Forty Hours Devotion/Period of Eucharistic Adoration

The Forty Hours Devotion is a special period of prayer made before the Blessed Sacrament in solemn exposition. The focus is upon our Lord in the Holy Eucharist. It begins with a Mass of Exposition, which concludes with the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. The Blessed Sacrament remains on the altar in a Monstrance while the faithful gather for personal or public prayer in adoration of our Lord.  This devotion provides a wonderful opportunity for the spiritual growth of each person and the parish as a whole. Devotion can be seen almost like a parish mini-retreat or mission. The devotion was introduced into our Archdiocese by Saint John Neumann, our fourth bishop.
