SAVE THE DATE—Mary Our Queen 40 Hours of Devotion Retreat
Starting on Ash Wednesday, 2/22, at 7 pm Mass and concluding with Vespers and Solemn Benediction on Friday, 2/24, at 7 pm. To mark the beginning of the 40 days of Lent, MOQ is holding a retreat led by Fr. Joe Laramie, North American director of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network and author of 2 personal retreat books, Love Him Ever More and Abide in the Heart of Christ, which focus on devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. During the 3-day Retreat, Fr. Laramie will lead us at 7 pm on Wednesday (Ash Wednesday), Thursday (Lenten Penance Service), and Friday (Sung Vespers and Solemn Benediction). Hourly adoration in our Sanctuary is also available during the 40 hours. These 3 days of intense prayer and devotion can include great pageantry, with solemn processions as the Blessed Sacrament is carried through the sanctuary, and almost mirror the intense prayer of the three-day Triduum at the end of Lent.
