On Sunday, June 2, Catholics in the Diocese of Palm Beach and around the world will be united with Pope Francis for an hour of Eucharistic Adoration. June 2 is the Feast of Corpus Christi.


On June 2 at 5 p.m. (Central European time) the Holy Father will preside at an hour of Eucharistic Adoration in St Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, in communion with all Bishops and with their local diocesan communities around the world. The universal scope of this moment is to be a gesture of spiritual sharing. For this reason it is asked that all Bishops join with the Holy Father. According to Archbishop Fisichella, who leads the Pontifical Council for Promoting New Evangelization, hundreds of dioceses worldwide, including 243 dioceses in the United States and even in countries such as Vietnam, South Korea, South Africa, Chile, and New Zealand will be in union.


In the Diocese of Palm Beach, as Rome (CET) is currently six hours ahead of Southeast Florida (EST), the Holy Hour would take place at 11 a.m. Since some parishes have a regularly scheduled morning Mass around 11 a.m., and in order to maintain the spiritual union desired by the Pontifical Council on the New Evangelization, Bishop Barbarito has asked diocesan parishes to give special emphasis to the Mass taking place in parishes around 11 a.m. on June 2. If a parish schedule is free at 11 a.m., parishes are encouraged to hold a special Holy Hour at that time. Some parishes have scheduled Holy Hours for later in the afternoon.


Below is a list of times and locations of scheduled Holy Hours on June 2. Parishioners are encouraged to check their parish bulletins.



11:30 a.m. – Noon (12 p.m.) St Jude Church, Tequesta

2:30 p.m. - 5:40 p.m. St. Juliana Church, West Palm Beach

3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Cathedral of St. Ignatius Loyola, Palm Beach Gardens
