The Cathedral Parish will be having the beautiful 40 Hours Devotion for Lent from Sunday 21 March – Wednesday 24 March.

The Blessed Sacrament will be enthroned in the monstrance on the main altar for adoration for 40 hours. Turn to Our Eucharistic Lord and lift up our concerns and the concerns of our nation and world to the Risen Christ. 35 official adorers are needed but many more may sign up or attend.
