Novena to the Holy Spirit

Published on May 11, 2024

Recalling the example of the disciples after the Ascension, who persevered together in prayer with Mary, the M

other of Jesus. Archbishop Farrell has asked all Catholics across the Archdiocese to offer a nine da

y novena beginning today, the Feast of the Ascension of the Lord (Sunday 12th May), through the Feast of Pentecost (Sunday 19th May), ending on the Feast of Mary, Mother of the Church (Monday 20th May). Our Novena to the Holy Spirit is a crucial part of the Building Hope pastoral renewal process of prayerful listening, dialogue, planning and action. Pope Francis encourages times such as these of prayerful reflection, listening and sharing, so that we can better hear the voice of God’s Spirit, to help direct the Church into the future. We trust this prayerful period will

be fruitful for our parish partnership and for our Archdiocese. Each day at mass we will pray the Building Hope Prayer. We encourage you to pray it at home. You will find it in the Parish Newsletter, on our parish website and on our Social media. There are also copies available at the doors of the Church.
