This year, Msgr. Todd Lajiness, president and rector of Sacred Heart Major Seminary is encouraging the participation of the First Friday devotions and penance. The first Friday of November is November 1, which is also All Saints Day, a Holy Day of Obligation in the Catholic Church.
The First Friday devotion includes: The Litany to the Sacred Heart; Consecration to the Sacred Heart; and one decade of the Rosary, reflecting on the Fifth Sorrowful Mystery, the Crucifixion.
If you don’t already participate in the devotions, consider joining with the SHMS family virtually. The prayers can be found here.
