On the evening of Wednesday March 6 at 5:00pm Rome time (11:00am ET/8:00am PT), the Prayer for the Church on the Occasion of the General Congregations of the College of Cardinals will take place at the Altar of the Cathedra in St. Peter's Basilica.
The order of the service is as follows:
  • The prayer will begin with the recitation of the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary in Italian and Latin.
  • Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will be followed by a brief Adoration.
  • The recitation of Vespers, the Evening prayer of the Church (there will be no presider for the Vespers).
