Churches open for ‘24 Hours for the Lord'

Year of Mercy

Seven churches in the Diocese of Erie that have been designated as pilgrimage sites during the Holy Year of Mercy will celebrate “24 Hours for the Lord,” an initiative of the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization.

The event is designed to welcome not only the active faithful, but also those estranged from the Catholic Church. The designated churches will mark the 24-hour period March 4-5 with special services. The initiative focuses on the sacrament of reconciliation and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

During the Year of Mercy, people are encouraged to promote and invite others who may be waiting for an invitation to the sacrament of reconciliation.

The following pilgrimage sites in the Diocese of Erie are celebrating the 24-hour event: St. Peter Cathedral, Erie; St. Bernard, Bradford; Ss. Cosmas & Damian, Punxsutawney; St. Joseph, Warren ; St. Michael, Greenville; Sacred Heart, St. Marys; and Our Lady of Mercy, Harborcreek. Contact each church for times of services.
