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 suspended due to local and university regulations.

We invite you to use this season to press into contemplative prayer in new ways. Check out Pray As You Go, any of these apps, a Scripture reading plan, a daily reading reflection, or whatever works for you!

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.

St. Pope John Paul II
