November 17 through 25 – Thanksgiving Novena
From Wednesday, November 17 through Thanksgiving Day on Thursday, November 25, the Parish will offer a Thanksgiving Novena of Prayer. The Novena Prayer will be recited at all our parish Masses in both churches during these nine days. The evening Masses at St. Catherine of Siena will be offered for the intentions of all those participating in these days of thanksgiving for blessings received during the past year. Our intention Book of Remembrance is located on the Altar of the Sacred Heart in St. Catherine of Siena Church and on the Rosary Altar in St. Vincent Ferrer Church. You are invited to add your intentions so that we might join all of our prayers together.
Please have a listen to Fr. Peter Martyr’s message and join him in praying the Thanksgiving Novena. Fr. Peter Martyr invites you to reflect on the many ways the Lord has blessed us and our loved ones.
Father all powerful,
Your gifts of love are countless,
and Your goodness infinite;
as we come before You
for Your kindness,
open our hearts to have concern
for all peoples everywhere,
so that we may share Your gifts
in loving concern.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God forever & ever.
