What is a Novena?
A novena is a nine-day period of private or public prayer to obtain special graces, to implore special favors, or to make special petitions. (Novena is derived from the Latin “novem”, meaning nine.) As the definition suggests, the novena has always had more of a sense of urgency and neediness.

Novenas we celebrate at Saint Jude the Apostle:
Saint Jude Novena begins Wednesday, October 19
All Souls Novena begins November 2
Divine Mercy Novena
Mother’s Day Novena in May
Father’s Day Novena in June
