Sunday 15 – Tuesday 17 September 2019

Our 40 Hours will of course be held in the temporary church located in the hall. As usual, 40 hours will run over three days, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Adoration will take place from the end of the 12.15 pm Mass on Sunday, and end at 5.00 pm with simple Benediction. On Monday and Tuesday, Adoration begins at the end of the 10 am Mass, and will end with the holy Hour at 7.00 pm.

Monday’s Holy hour will be led by Rev. Deacon Antony Connelly, C.P., a member of the Passionist Community in Glasgow and well known to many of us in St. Matthew’s as a parishioner.

Tuesday’s Holy hour will be led by Fr. Hill, on themes relating to the rebuilding of our church, physically with the building work, and spiritually, as a renewal of our parish.

As in previous years, we will ask parishioners to commit to periods of adoration to ensure that the Blessed Sacrament is never left unattended.
