Eternal worship is over

Without any connection to my atheism, I think that surely many religious people will giggle at texts like these:

As the end of the eternal worship* in the parish of Wolnzach, this Saturday the celebratory evening service will be held at 6 p.m. in the parish chruch “St. Laurentius”.”
Pfaffenhofener Kurier 1 Mar 08, translation and emphasis mine.

(And yes, I looked into it* and know that it’s not uncommon to have this eternal worship move from one parish or church to the next.)

* This is the literal translation of German “Ewige Anbetung” for this catholic tradition, I don’t know if there’s a special English name for it, and there is no corresponding English Wikipedia page.
