All are invited to the January First Friday all-night adoration vigil of the Two Hearts, January 4–5. In keeping with the tradition begun by the Sisters of the Carmelite Monastery in Dallas, the purpose of this vigil is to beg God’s mercy and Our Lady’s intercession for America.
Please sign up for Eucharistic Adoration on the adoration sign-up calendar to help ensure that we have adequate attendance for Our Lord at all hours of the vigil.
