A Novena is a devotion consisting of a set of prayers prayed publicly or privately, most commonly on nine consecutive days or weeks, and usually for a special intention. All who desire to become closer to our Lord are welcome to experience the many blessings this special form of prayer can bestow.
Novenas are often prayed when going through difficulty and crisis in one’s life or at any other time one is seeking special graces, guidance or intercession. Virtually all Novenas can be said at any time of the year but some are also particularly appropriate for certain times of the year.
At St Michael’s we pray the Novena of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal every Monday after noon Mass.
