The Catholic Society is organising a 24-hour Vigil of Prayer starting with Mass at 12:15pm on Thursday 16 June and concluding with Mass at 12:15pm on Friday 17 June. The church will be open and the Blessed Sacrament exposed throughout the period, and the vigil will be punctuated by the celebration of the Divine Office and other prayers and devotions. The Vigil coincides with a “relay” vigil taking place around various churches of the Deanery and for which we are taking the “night shift!”.
While this is organised by the students, all from the Parish and Deanery (and beyond!) are warmly invited to join the vigil for as little or as long as possible. If you can commit to an hour (or more) before the blessed sacrament, please sign up on the list at the back of the church – we need to ensure that there are at least two people before the Blessed Sacrament throughout the vigil.
