Prayers for Pentecost


The nine days after the Solemnity of the Ascension to Pentecost are traditionally set aside for prayer uniting ourselves with the Apostles gathered with Mary in the upper room in Jerusalem waiting for the gift of the Holy Spirit. This is where we get the term, Novena, which comes from the Latin word for nine- Novem. There are Novena prayers available to print out on the website if you and your family would like to join us in praying with Mary for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

You and your families are always in our thoughts and prayers.
