Expositon and Adoration will take place in the Saint Joseph Chapel, ground level.
At the request of Pope Francis, we are embarking on A Revolution of Love and Tenderness. The source and summit of this revolution is God. It is in God that we find our inspiration and our strength to live out this uncommon and quiet revolution.
To that end we invite all our parishioners to dedicate 24 hours to our Lord starting Friday, March 31 at noon and ending Saturday, April 1 at Noon. During this time, all are asked to be more aware of God’s presence in our lives. The Basilica is offering several spiritual opportunities to be present to the Lord but invites all to dedicate themselves to acts of mercy, love, and tenderness in a special way during these 24 Hours for the Lord.
