Holy Hour At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, while much of the world was shut down, Pope Francis gave a transformative witness to the power of prayer, Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction in an extraordinary blessing televised across the world. The strength of that call to have faith in the time of crisis was a sign of what a Eucharist-centered Church can offer the world. Bishop William Joensen is encouraging us to renew our focus on the Eucharist. He will host a Holy Hour at St. Ambrose Cathedral in Des Moines on Mondays from 5-6 p.m. You can watch it at Facebook.com/dmdiocese. St. John's will offer a Holy Hour and Stations of the Cross Fridays through Lent beginning at 6 pm. We hope you will join us!
