Today, Friday 13 March the Oscott seminarians will be starting their 40 Hours Eucharistic Devotion, Quarant'ore.

They will especially be keeping in their prayers their chosen charity for the year, ‘Across,’ and all the prayer intentions of those who have donated candles to be burned before the Blessed Sacrament.

Forty Hours' Devotion,Quarant'ore, is a traditional Catholic devotion of continuous prayer for forty hours before the Blessed Sacrament in solemn exposition. The seminarians (trainee priests) of Oscott will be praying this devotion from  13th-15th March.

If you would like a candle to be burned before the Blessed Sacrament during this time of prayer for your special intention then please make a donation of £5 to Across Charity and leave your prayer intention as a message when you do.

Your candle will be burned, your prayer intentions will be prayed for by the seminarians and you will be supporting a fantastic charity who help the sick, disabled and terminally ill to go on pilgrimage to Lourdes.
