The Next Novena: It’s the Year of…

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

The next novena we will pray is to a powerful patron. Saint John Paul II called this saint the Guardian of the Redeemer. 

The next novena is the Novena to Saint Joseph, Husband of Mary! We will start praying together on March 10th and you can share your prayer intentions below.

The feast of St. Joseph is only one of a few that we celebrate throughout Lent, and it will be particularly special to pray this novena together this year as Pope Francis declared this year the Year of St. Joseph. You can read about that here.

One of our Pray More Lenten Retreat speakers from last year, Scott Powell, gave a talk about St. Joseph — about what we know about him and what we can learn from him. You can watch, listen to, or read through the talk here — we think it’s a perfect way to prepare to pray through his intercession:

St. Joseph: Protector and Father

St. Joseph humbly accepted his role as guardian, husband and father in the Holy Family. Therefore, St. Joseph’s intercession has been sought for centuries.

St. Joseph was clearly very close to our Lord and so we come to him with this novena with a sense of humility because of his great humility.

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

God bless you!
