Confessions will also be heard at that time.
Archbishop Charles Chaput will celebrate Mass for the solemnity of the Body and Blood of Our Lord immediately following at 6:30 p.m.
The holy hour is part of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s participation in the Fortnight for Freedom, a campaign of the Catholic bishops of the U.S. to raise awareness of threats to religious freedom and to encourage Catholics to pray for it.
The campaign cites threats to traditional marriage from court decisions allowing same-sex marriage, pressure from the federal government to comply with the HHS mandate that requires contraceptive coverage by religious employers and continuing erosion of religious liberty in countries around the world.
