24 hours for the Lord

  • Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary 2640 East Orange Grove Boulevard Pasadena, CA, 91107 United States (map)

Free, open to all. Mercy will triumph over judgment and His grace will shock you! All are welcome: occasional churchgoers, divorced, estranged, sinners and hypocrites... those who try and those who gave up. Bring your brokenness, doubts, fears and questions to the MERCY ZONE. 

We are taking pope Francis' call to reconciliation seriously and proposing 24h non-stop prayer, fasting and giving with various communities of young adults (including married with kids). Come and spend one, several or 24 h in the Presence of Love. 

Sacrament of reconciliation, Mass, Adoration, intercession, praise and worship, healing and prophetic ministry teams in an atmosphere of joyful penance bringing hearts to the exuberant process of metanoia = running toward Jesus. Connect with others who are seeking meaning and revival.

Confession times:

Friday: 8:30 - 9:30 pm

Saturday: 9:30 am - 11:30 am, 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm, 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm (parish)



The sanctuary will be restricted only to prayer. All conversations will happen outside or in the church hall.


Water, hot tea and bread will be provided throughout the event. You may bring your own food and eat it in the parish hall. 


Donations for charity causes will be received. 


Pope Francis' Message for Lent 2018:

One such moment of grace will be, again this year, the “24 Hours for the Lord” initiative, which invites the entire Church community to celebrate the sacrament of Reconciliation in the context of Eucharistic adoration. In 2018, inspired by the words of Psalm 130:4, “With you is forgiveness”
— Pope Francis, 2018
