Holy Hours for Vocations Tour Has Begun
The first Centennial Holy Hour for Vocations was held Friday, October 1, at Saint Emily Catholic Church in Mount Prospect with over 75 people in attendance. The Blessed Sacrament was profound to behold on the altar in the historic monstrance that was first used at the 1926 International Eucharistic Congress held in downtown Chicago and on the grounds of Mundelein Seminary.
As the event drew to a close, Father James Presta ‘86, pastor of Saint Emily, addressed those attending with these words, “We’re very grateful for this opportunity to celebrate the Eucharist, to be in the presence of the Lord in this very special, unique and most solemn way as we celebrate vocations.”
Seminarians from the Archdiocese of Atlanta assisted with benediction. You can see more of the story and photos by clicking here.
The second Holy Hour will be at Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity Parish in Chicago at 6 pm on October 21.
