From Wednesday, January 25, the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, through Wednesday, February 2, the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, the Parish will offer a Novena of Prayer.

Holy cards are available in both churches and the Novena Prayer will be recited at all Masses during this period. Please visit the infant of Prague in both churches to enter your petitions in the Book of Intentions for the Novena.

Novena Prayer

My own eyes have seen salvation
which you have prepared in the sight of every people.
(Luke 2: 30-31)

V. We ponder your loving kindness.
R. Within your Temple, O Lord.

Let us pray.

We give you praise, ever living and ever loving God, for the many gifts you have given each of us and all of us. Grant us grace, we pray, to make an offering of them. As your son was presented in the Temple, so help us present ourselves, that we may share his generosity of self and his freedom in you, for He lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God forever and ever.
