The Cathedral Filipino-American Ministry is inviting everyone to nine days of Simbang Gabi novena masses at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament from December 16 through December 24.

Holy Hour of Reparation

Friday, January 5, 2024

The First Friday of each month immediately following the

12:10 Mass in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel

Jesus implores us to stay, watch, and pray with Him, just as He did to His apostles: "My soul is sorrowful even unto death. Stay you here and watch with Me (Matthew 26:38)." Jesus told St. Margaret Mary to "make reparation for the ingratitude of men. Spend an hour in prayer to appease divine justice, to implore mercy for sinners, to honor Me, to console Me for My bitter suffering when abandoned by My apostles, when they did not watch one hour with me."

During this holy hour of reparation before the Blessed Sacrament, we will pray a Spiritual Communion, Acts of Reparation and Consecration to the Sacred Heart, and preparation for a Happy Death. Holy Hour of Reparation is a devotion much needed by our world today, amid its tragedies and sin.

Revival’s in the Air


The National Eucharistic Revival will foster Eucharistic devotion at the parish level, strengthening our liturgical life through the faithful celebration of the Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, missions, resources, preaching, and organic movements of the Holy Spirit. 

Jesus Christ invites us to return to the source and summit of our faith in the celebration of the Eucharist. The National Eucharistic Revival is a movement to restore understanding and devotion to this great mystery here in the United States by helping us renew our worship of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

Watch the video to learn more about the exciting journey ahead and how you can be a part of it!
