Monthly Holy Hour of Prayer for Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty

The monthly Holy Hour of Prayer for Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty  will be held on the first Saturday of every month from 8:30 am to 9:30 am (after the 8:00 am Mass for the Sanctity of Life and Marriage) at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart.

“In a world where there is so much noise, so much bewilderment, there is a need for silent adoration of Jesus concealed in the Host. Be assiduous in the prayer of adoration…It is a source of comfort and light, particularly to those who are suffering.” - Pope Benedict XVI

St. Augustine (354-430), Doctor of the Church and patron of the Augustinian order. His writings have had an inestimable impact on the Church and on Western Civilization. Where did such faith begin? After rejecting his mother’s Christianity as simplistic and restraining, Augustine embarked on a path marked by the pursuit of money, political power, and pleasure. Explore the conversion story of one of the most significant figures in church history and learn about his struggle to find answers amid a sea of competing voices. He found holiness and that is a relevant message for all of us.

Travel to 4th century Rome to discover why St. Augustine 
has become “A Voice for all Generations.”
