Eucharistic Adoration at cathedral
all night on Holy Thursday

The Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland will provide Eucharistic Adoration throughout the night of April 1 after the 8 p.m. Holy Thursday Mass.

Members of the Cathedral parish and the diocesan Confraternity of Eucharistic Devotion will keep prayerful vigil into Friday. Anyone is welcome to join them, said Father Paul Minnihan, cathedral provost.
At the end of the Holy Thursday Mass, Bishop Salvatore Cordileone will carry the Blessed Sacrament from the cathedral to the cathedral mausoleum where a Chapel of Repose will be located. The Blessed Sacrament will remain there until the Good Friday Liturgy.

During the adoration, the cathedral will be closed, but the parking garage and the mausoleum chapel will be open. Parking is free, and security will be on hand at all times.

Every 30 minutes, prayer will be offered in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament:

• At 10 p.m., Liturgy of the Hours: Night Prayer (Compline) will be offered in English.

• At 10:30 p.m., the Filipino community will lead a Rosary in Tagalog.

• At 11 p.m., the Vietnamese community will offer prayers in Vietnamese.

• At 11:30 p.m., the Hispanic community will offer prayers in Spanish.

At Midnight, Solemn Adoration will end with a brief service, but silent prayer and adoration will continue until the start of the Good Friday Liturgy at 12:10 p.m. There will also be Good Friday liturgies at the cathedral in Spanish (6 p.m.) and in Vietnamese (8 p.m.)

The cathedral is located at the corner of Grand Avenue and Harrison Street. Entry will be through the parking garage (enter on 21st Street) or through the mausoleum doors located on street level at 2121 Harrison Street.

For more information, contact the Cathedral Parish, (510) 832-5057.
