DAY OF PRAYER & REPARATION
Day of Prayer and Reparation
Friday, September 14th
The Reverend Bishop John M. Quinn has called for a day of repentance and prayer for all those who were “victimized by priests, deacons, religious, bishops, or cardinals”.
Friday, September 14th, 2018, will be set aside as a special day of prayer and reparation in the whole Diocese of Winona-Rochester.
In our Christ the King and Holy Family community, Father John will be celebrating daily Mass at Christ the King at 9:00am, Friday, September 14th. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will begin at 9:45am. Adoration will be held until Benediction at 6:00pm.
A sign-up sheet for Adoration is located in the narthex at both churches. Please take time to be with Jesus on this special day. If you are unable to sign up for a time slot for Adoration, please take time to pray with us in spirit.
Bishop Quinn adds that “all of us are also encouraged to voluntarily fast and also to perform acts of penance and charity on this day or another day”.
