Forty Hours Devotion

Saint David Parish
Forty Hours Devotion
Sunday, March 5 to Sunday, March 7, 2023

Fr. Dennis Carbonaro, our retreat leader, will offer insightful reflections on the beauty and importance of the Eucharist.

If you are unable to attend in person, we will be livestreaming the liturgies on our website:

Opening Mass & Exposition | Sunday 3/5 at 11 AM
Evening Prayer & Benediction | Sunday 3/5 at 4 PM
Night Prayer & Benediction | Monday 3/6 & Tuesday  3/7 at 7 PM

Our world is hurting. We all need healing, yet many of us are separated from the very source of our strength. Jesus Christ invites us to return to the source and summit of our faith in the celebration of the Eucharist.

The Forty Hours Devotion provides a wonderful opportunity for the spiritual growth and healing of each person and the parish as a whole. In a world where temptation and evil abound, where devotion to the Mass and our Lord in the Holy Eucharist have declined, where the practice of penance and confession have been forgotten, we need the Forty Hours Devotion more than ever.

We have chosen the National Eucharistic Revival as our theme for our Forty Hours Devotional Retreat. The National Eucharistic Revival is a movement to restore understanding and devotion to this great mystery here in the United States by helping us renew our worship of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

Over these 40 hours, our faithful will gather in the church for personal or public prayer in adoration of our Lord. There will be various prayer services and devotions offered during our celebration, but most often we will offer periods of prayerful silence. All parishioners and friends of Saint David Catholic Church are welcome to attend as much of the Forty Hours Devotion as their schedule permits. Registration is not required, however a sign up has been created to ensure the Blessed Sacrament is never left alone.
