The Next Novena – A Saint for Healing & Comfort

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

At some point in our lives, each of us will be affected by cancer or another terminal disease. 

Whether it affects us directly or indirectly, it can cause great suffering in our lives. 

So many of the prayer requests we receive are for those suffering with cancer. 

So the next novena we will pray is the St. Peregrine Novena for Cancer Patients starting on Wednesday, January 13th.

You can share your prayer intentions in the comment section below.

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. 

So we will pray this novena for all cancer patients, 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:

And you can share your prayer intentions in the comment section below.

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 January 13th. That’s a little less than one week away!

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

God bless you!
