Vigil for liberty planned at St. Patrick Cathedral
CHARLOTTE — St. Patrick Cathedral invites all the faithful to a period of continuous Eucharistic Adoration from Monday, Sept. 3, to Thursday, Sept. 6, coinciding with the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.
This time of Adoration and prayer will focus on petitions for our country, our leaders and ourselves in atonement for our sins and for the future of our nation. Among these petitions are the right to live, unthreatened by government mandate, from natural conception to natural death, and for the freedom of conscience and the unhindered worship of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Volunteers may sign up for as many hours as they like during the four-day vigil (Note: Children younger than 18 are not permitted in the church without a chaperoning adult between the hours of 9 p.m. and 7 a.m.)
