Due to the university’s decisions regarding public gatherings and our own concern for the health and well-being of our Duke Catholic community, many of our events and celebrations are cancelled or virtualized. Please read on for specific details on Holy Hour.

Holy Hour

For now, Holy Hour is simply virtual.

Please join us on YouTube on Tuesday nights from 7-8 p.m. EDT for some music, a special reflection, and quiet prayer time before the Blessed Sacrament.

We also encourage you to use the below prayer as many saints over the years have done to grow closer to our Lord during times of separation from Him in the Eucharist.

Spiritual Act of Communion

It is good to cultivate in our hearts a constant desire for the sacrament of the Eucharist. This was the origin of the practice of ‘spiritual communion,’ which has happily been established in the Church for centuries and recommended by saints who were masters of the spiritual life.
