9 Days of Prayer
NINE DAYS OF PRAYER - Novena
In preparation for Pentecost
Pope Paul VI taught us that the Holy Spirit is the "Principle Agent" of evangelization. When his power is released in us, our lives are refreshed, our sense of purpose is renewed, our parishes are re-vitalized, and our mission is more effective than ever. Over a century ago, Pope Leo XIII asked that every church in the world pray the Novena to the Holy Spirit every year in the nine days leading up to Pentecost.
This year, Pentecost falls on June 4th. As a parish, we will begin the Novena at the 5 o’clock mass Saturday, May 27th and will continue with it at all daily masses, ending on Pentecost Sunday. The booklets will be in the pews in the main church and the chapel to use during masses.
