BUKIT PADANG – The Church of Mary Immaculate (CMI) here inaugurated its monthly Holy Hour on 18 Jan 2018.
Mooted by Father Paul Lo at the last 2017 liturgical meeting of the sub-parish and approved by parish priest Archbishop John Wong, it was carried through at 8 pm on Thursday, Jan 18.
Over a hundred faithful gathered for the devotion which ended with Benediction by Fr Lo.
The Holy Hour is the practice of spending an hour in Eucharistic adoration in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. A plenary indulgence is granted for this practice.
In many churches, it is done on Thursdays to commemorate the institution of the Eucharist by Jesus at the Last Supper.
In CMI, it is on every third Thursday (subject to change) of the month from 8 pm – 9 pm. All are welcome to join in the devotion.
