Immaculate Conception Novena

Eleven years ago, I asked John-Paul to pray the Immaculate Conception Novena with me.

He actually turned me down, because he always had trouble finishing a novena — he would always forget.

After he thought a little bit more about it, he said he knew that wasn’t a good enough reason not to join me in prayer.

So, this inspired him to create to help people remember to…


Pray More Novenas! :)

Since then, thousands of people from all around the world have joined us in praying together!

So, please join us in praying the Immaculate Conception Novena — it starts on Monday, November 29th.

You can sign up to pray with us here:

We’re looking forward to praying with you and for you! 

God bless you!

John-Paul & Annie –
