School of Divinity hosts Cor Jesu, Borromeo Weekend

Cor Jesu and the Borromeo Weekend are happening this weekend at the St. Paul Seminary School of Divinity of the University of St. Thomas. Cor Jesu will be part of the Borromeo Weekend and will start at 10 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2.

Borromeo weekend, also known as the 40-hour devotion, is 40 hours of Eucharistic adoration. It starts with Mass and then a procession of the Blessed Sacrament.

During the 40 hours various prayers, such as the rosary and the divine office, Confession, song and the Divine Mercy Chaplet, are said. It ends with Mass at 10 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 4, at St. Mary's Chapel, followed by a formal brunch at Binz.

All are welcome for any part of the weekend. Everything but the opening Mass, which will be held at 7 p.m. tonight at St. John Vianney Seminary, will be held in St. Mary's Chapel at the School of Divinity.
