NOVENAS
Explained by Michael Rubbelke
Director of Adult Faith Formation

Have you ever promised to pray for someone and didn't know a good way to do it? Have you ever experienced a desperate need for yourself or another and wanted to pray for help in a sustained way? Have you ever wanted to grow in trust and perseverance in your prayer? Pray a novena!

A novena is a set of prayers prayed over nine consecutive days, either to prepare for an important feast in the Church (Divine Mercy Sunday, Pentecost) or to ask for what you or another needs. Learn more about praying novenas in the video below, and click on the links to start praying them!

COVID PRAYER

The following prayer will replace the parish stewardship prayer at Mass until further notice.

Mother of Divine Love, we entrust to you our nation and world, our families and loved ones, that we may be spared the worst of this illness.

In this time of trial and testing, hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful.

For those already afflicted, obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.

For those working to help the sick and bring an end to this crisis, obtain the strength to continue their work.

Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, conform us to the will of the Father, remind us always of the love of your Son, Jesus, and bring his peace to our land and to our hearts.

Amen.
Saint Rocco, protector against the plague and all contagious diseases, pray for us!
