From Friday, 23 October through Sunday, 25 October, 2020, Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Avondale, Auckland will hold the Forty Hours Devotion—the continual exposition and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament for forty hours—for the following intentions :
- The reparation for sins, especially those against life and nature,
- The peaceful ending of heresy and schism,
- The return of the wayward to God and His Church, and
- The propogation of the Catholic Faith,
- The protection of God over New Zealand,
- The return to Catholic Tradition of wayward clergy.
Please consider joining the faithful of Immaculate Heart of Mary Church for an hour or more of adoration of Our Sacramental Lord, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass or the Solemn Procession in honor of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King.
While you are welcome to come at any time, if you wish to pledge to come for an hour (as we need at least 2 people always watching the Blessed Sacrament), you can signup here.
