Jubilee Year of Mercy – 4th to 5th March

24 Hours with the Lord – St Joseph’s Church, 4th – 5th March

As part of the Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis has asked that on the weekend of the 4th Sunday of Lent the whole Church celebrates 24 hours of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, with the opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation made available.

Here in Guernsey we will keep St Joseph’s Church open for 24 hours beginning at 7.00pm on Friday 4th March with our Friday night Stations of the Cross and concluding on Saturday 5th March with Benediction at 6.30pm.

Confessions during this period will be available between 9.00am – 11.00am on Saturday 5th March. (The 10.00am Mass will be celebrated as usual)

Your Assistance is required please:

It will be necessary to know in advance that there will be at least two people in the Church at all times to watch. There is a clipboard in each church this weekend with time slots of one hour periods for volunteers to fill in. You may of course fill in more than one time slot if you wish! Alternatively, you can call the Parish Office during the week to add your name to a time. Thank you.
