Forty Hours Devotion


#1

Hi,
I'd like to be able to attend a 40 Hours Devotion, but I can't seem to find one in my diocese. I even looked in the diocese website, but it was confusing. I couldn't even find anything on the sites of some parishes. I go to the Fort Worth Latin Mass Community at St. Mary's in Fort Worth, TX. Is there anyone here who can help me out?

I haven't heard of 40 hours devotion since I was a little girl, but most Catholic parishes do have exposition of the Blessed Sacrament at least once a month. Some have it for seven hours, some have it from after morning mass to 7:00 PM, and some have it once a week till 4:00 PM.

There are some parishes that have the Blessed Sacrament exposed seven days a week, twenty-four hours of the day. It takes a lot of cooperation and planning to do that. We have one such parish near us. It has been going on for over ten years now.

Go to masstimes.org. Put in your zip code and search. Look for any Church which says "Adoration."

I searched on "Fort Worth" and found eleven churches with adoration.

If you have access to transportation, there is all-night adoration at the Oak Cliff Carmelite Monastery every First Friday/First Saturday, with EF masses by Fr. W at 8p (with homily & confession available) and Fr. L (no homily or confession). There’s also going to be an all-night adoration vigil at the FSSP parish in Irving the last Friday of June, I believe.

But as far as a true 40-hour devotion, I don’t know of any in the area. I don’t even know of any perpetual adoration chapels in either diocese in the DFW area.
