The Congregation for the Clergy recently published a circular exhorting the faithful to organize 60 hours of Eucharistic adoration in honor of Pope Benedict XVI's 60th sacerdotal anniversary. In response the Archdioceses of Manila and of Lingayen-Dagupan have posted their programmes of Eucharistic adoration on their respective websites:

This presents an inspired occasion for us to present a sincere manifestation of our spiritual union with him. In solidarity with the Universal Church, and as suggested by the Congregation for Clergy, each parish, shrine, chaplaincy, and communities of religious men and women in the Archdiocese of Manila will have a 60-hour Eucharistic Adoration for the Sanctification of Priests starting on the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul on June 29 (also Pope Benedict XVI’s presbyteral ordination date) and ending on July 1, 2011, the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. A prayer booklet on the 60-hour Eucharistic Adoration, prepared by the Archdiocesan Liturgical Commission, will be sent to all parishes and shrines.
The 60-Hours of adoration will be distributed to all the parishes and schools of the Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan. Each parish and school will be given a one-hour adoration. The Congregation for the Clergy also proposes that in addition to praying for the Pope’s life, health, happiness and protection from every evil, the faithful are asked to pray for bishops, priests, deacons and all ministers of the Gospel, that they may be faithful to their vocation and their self-giving, and to remember the Church, vocations, the laity and deceased priests.
The rest of the circular from the Archdiocese of Lingayen-Dagupan contains the schedule of hours of adoration per parish / institution.
