The Next Novena: A Saint for Healing & Comfort this January

New here? Join us in prayer! Click here to get novena reminders by email!

So many of the prayer requests we receive are for those suffering with cancer. Whether it affects us directly or indirectly, it can cause great suffering in our lives and in the lives of those we love.

So the next novena we will pray is the St. Peregrine Novena starting on Tuesday, January 11th.

You can share your prayer intentions with us all below — we’re praying for you!

St. Peregrine is the patron saint of cancer patients. He had a cancerous ulcer on his leg which was miraculously cured when it was thought to be beyond saving. 

We will pray this novena for all cancer patients, for all those suffering from life-threatening and chronic illnesses, for their families & friends, as well as for physicians and scientists working to discover a cure and to bring relief.

We hope you will join us in praying this novena, and that you will share it with all of your friends & family. 

You can sign up to pray with us here:

St. Peregrine’s feast day is May 1st. But as with every novena, you can pray it any time of the year — and we will start this one on Tuesday, January 11th.

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

God bless you!

John-Paul & Annie –
