24 Hours for the Lord

Friday – Saturday 24th – 25th March 2017

The Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelisation wishes that a special emphasis would be placed on the Sacrament of Reconciliation at this event, preferably in the context of Eucharistic Adoration. They also suggest that the proceedings could conclude with the celebration of the Saturday Vigil Mass for Sunday. The season of Lent is a time of repentance and of personal conversion and it is hoped that this event may help place the Sacrament of Reconciliation at the centre of the Church’s mission for the new evangelisation.
