Forty Hours at

St. Valentine Catholic Church

Peru, Illinois


The LaSalle Vicariate invites you to “come apart and pray a while” at the 40 Hours in honor of the Blessed Sacrament, to be held at St. Valentine Church, November 7th through the 11th.

The event will begin with a Solemn High Latin Mass, the first in LaSalle County for over 50 years, on Wednesday the 7th at 6:30 p.m., followed by a Eucharistic Procession and Benediction.

The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed throughout the day on November 8th through the 11th, and you are welcome to stop by for some quiet time of prayer with our Lord during those days.

We will be inspired twice daily by exhortations on “The Holy Eucharist and Our Lady of Fatima,” given by Fr. Eduardo Garcia of the Archdiocese of Chicago.

You can also use the Holy Hour Booklets, quietly or in small groups; available in English, Spanish, and Polish, as well as children’s editions in English and Spanish.

You won’t want to miss the Closing Ceremonials, with Exhortation, Eucharistic Procession and Benediction, taking place on Sunday, November 11th, at 3:30 p.m. Please plan to join us now!
