The 24 Hours for the Lord was begun in 2014 by Pope Francis. It is an annual worldwide Lenten initiative for Catholics to receive the mercy of God through Eucharistic Adoration and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Pope Francis invites the entire Church to “celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation in the context of Eucharistic Adoration”. “Lent summons us, and enables us, to come back to the Lord wholeheartedly and in every aspect of our life,” Pope Francis said. “Above all, I urge the members of the Church to take up the Lenten journey with enthusiasm, sustained by almsgiving, fasting and prayer. If, at times, the flame of charity seems to die in our own hearts, know that this is never the case in the heart of God! God constantly gives us a chance to begin loving anew.”

At The Basilica Cathedral, there will be 24 hours of live streamed adoration. From 12PM Friday, March 12th until 12PM Saturday, March 13th.

On Friday, March 12th, from7PM-9PM. There will be a live streamed Liturgy on the theme of Reconciliation beginning at 7PM with a Gospel Reflection on the Parable of the Prodigal Son, reflective music with Benediction at 8:45PM.
