HOLY HOUR 3 – 4 PM TODAY St Thomas Aquinas Church This Holy Hour will be offered throughout England and Wales and coincides with the meeting between Pope Francis and the Christian communities in Bethlehem.  It is a prayerful way of giving very clear and profound support both to the Holy Father and to the Christians in the Holy Land.
