Forty Hours Parish Retreat

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia has established a special tradition of the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament spread throughout its parishes over the course of the year.

Mother of Divine Providence is home to this 40 Hour period of adoration on the first Sunday, Monday and Tuesday of the Lenten Season each year. Our parish has set aside these days of prayer and adoration as an all parish retreat or mission centering ourselves on Christ though adoration and responding to the call he asks of us. We engage in prayer throughout the day in his presence from the conclusion of 8:00 AM Mass until we come together in the evening at 7:30 PM for an inspirational presentation and fellowship.
