      Bishop opens 24 Hours with the Lord at Christ the King Parish
      Bishop McManus censes the Host at the start of the diocese’s “24 Hours for the Lord” Friday at Christ the King Parish in Worcester. With him are Father Richard F. Reidy, in residence there, and Msgr. Thomas J. Sullivan, the pastor. Bishop McManus said this celebration was an acceptance of Pope Francis’ invitation to join him and the universal Church in this time for God. The bishop said Lent is a good time for confession. He encouraged examining one’s conscience about how well one loves God and neighbor. In addition to Christ the King, parishes here with 24-hour adoration and confessions Friday into Saturday morning are: Annunciation in Gardner (in Holy Spirit Church), St. Joseph’s, Charlton, and St. Roch’s, Oxford.
