40 Hours Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament

40 Hours Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament

in Honor of St. Anthony Mary Zaccaria
September 10-12, 2009

Dear Doctors,

Greetings of Christ’s peace to you!

We at the Barnabite Spiritual Center will hold a Forty-Hour Adoration in honor of our Holy Founder, St. Anthony Mary Zaccaria beginning on September 10 at 7:00 p.m. and ending on September 12, 2009, with a Holy Mass at 11:00 a.m., to be presided by Rev. Fr. Gabriel M. Patil, CRSP. We cordially invite you to come and join us.

After the Mass, all are welcomed to share a "potluck" meal and continue to celebrate Jesus by breaking bread together.

I am glad to announce that this year we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of our First Thursday Adoration ministry; hence, the twofold significance of the Forty-Hour Adoration.

Attached herewith is the schedule of the Forty-Hour Adoration from September 10 to September 12. Please, fill in a time that is convenient for you to come and spend time with Christ in a very personal and spiritual way, and send your reply to me.

I look forward to this time when we will be praying and adoring the Lord together.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Fr. Robert B. Kosek, CRSP, Ph.D.

Greetings in the Lord,

Summer is coming to an end. Families have returned from vacations and children have started school. Coming up quickly is the 40 Hours Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in honor of St. Anthony Mary Zaccaria, the patron saint of physicians and the founder of the priest order of the Barnabites.

As usual we will have our prayerful meeting on the third Saturday, September 19 at 1:30 PM. Attached, please find the invitation to participate in the 40 hours Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from Fr. Robert Kosek.

God bless!
