Holy Hour Prayer Next Saturday at the Cathedral

September 8, 2018

Next Saturday, September 15th, on the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, the priests of the archdiocese along with Archbishop Hebda and Bishop Cozzens will gather to pray a Holy Hour at the Cathedral in St. Paul at 11 AM.  This prayer will be offered in reparation for the clergy sex abuse scandal that has so terribly harmed the many victims, and the entire church.  The theme will be sorrow, repentance, devotion, and determination to prevent such tragedy from ever happening again.  The intent of the prayer is to gather as many priests as possible from the archdiocese to pray together with the Archbishop on the feast day of our Sorrowful Mother.  However, the lay faithful are also invited and most welcome to join in this important prayer.


We would like to send a bus from St. Nicholas and Guardian Angels.  The bus will leave St. Nicholas at 9:30 AM and then Guardian Angels at 9:45 AM and arrive at the Cathedral about 10:30 AM.  It will return after the prayer arriving at GA around 1:00 PM and Carver about 1:15 PM.  Please call Jean at the parish office at GA, or Jodee at St. Nicholas to reserve a space on the bus.  I will not be on the bus because I will be going earlier for a meeting with the priests and the Archbishop before the prayer.  Please keep all victims of abuse, all priests, and our bishops and the Holy Father, and all the laity in your prayers during these challenging times.  Jesus is the light of the World and as we entrust all of this to Him and to our Blessed Mother, the light of Christ will outshine the darkness of sin and his resurrection triumph over all death and destruction.


Your Servant in Christ,

Fr. Deziel
