Introducing my wife Annie Deddens…

We were married this weekend and you will be seeing more of her around the PrayMoreNovenas community.

I thought you might want to see some photos from the wedding:

We haven’t gotten the photos back from our photographer yet, so I will post more when the ‘official’ pictures are available!

Thank you so much for all of your prayers and support!

I mentioned that you will see more of Annie around from now on. In fact, she will be helping quite a bit with PrayMoreNovenas as we continue to grow!

Speaking of growth, we are up to 24,140 people praying together!

  1. Dear John and Annie,


    Our very best wishes.



  3. Congratulations, JP and Annie. Even though my own marriage did not work out, I remain a firm believer in the institution of marriage, and I pray for all young couples like you for a long happy married life, blessed with many beautiful children. I assume Annie is named after St. Ann and you, after we know who, so with that combination, let the graces and blessings begin!

  4. Many Congratulations John-Paul and Annie Deddens.

    You are truly a beautiful couple and yes, Annie is indeed lovely…

    I pray that you both have a beautiful married life together, walking together in faith, unity and prayer.

    May God in His infinite mercy bless your home with peace, joy, laughter and the grace to face each new day with the conviction that He is always there for His children.

    May our Lady of Perpetual Help continually grant you her powerful intercession, Amen.

    And may St. Anthony of Padua (the patron saint of my own marriage) help you FIND true love in each other everyday of your lives, amen

    Best wishes and God’s grace,

    I am new to praymorenovenas, with the novena for marriage and family being my first to pray with you – how timely! A woman with whom I shared your service thanked me this week for inviting her to join the novena. A friend had shared it with me and I passed it on. God is truly blessing your efforts.

    May the two of you always, always trust in the Lord, seek His mother’s intercession, and be present to each other through thick and thin. The wedding pictures are beautiful! Your love for each other radiates from both of your faces!

    Many blessing for years to come!!

  24. Dear John and Annie,
