Holy Hour to coincide with World Youth Day

wydkrakowlogo-7-21-16-fYouth and young adults are invited to attend a Holy Hour at St. Patrick Church, 1000 N. Beckley Station Road, July 28 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The Holy Hour was organized in observance of World Youth Day, which began July 26 in Krakow, Poland, and continues through July 31.

The Holy Hour is an opportunity to pray “for the pilgrims in Poland and join them in their efforts to grow in faith here in Louisville,” said a news release from the organizers.

World Youth Day was expected to draw as many as 2 million people from around the world, mostly youth and young adults. From the U.S., there are more than 30,000 fully registered pilgrims and another 10,000 partially registered pilgrims, according to Catholic News Service.

Father Adam Carrico, associate pastor of St. Patrick, will lead adoration and be available for confession.

The Holy Hour will include songs, confession, the Divine Mercy Chaplet, a reflection on Pope Francis’ message for youth and quiet adoration.

Pope Francis has asked those who can’t attend the Poland event to join him in prayer, according to Catholic News Service.
