Novena of Grace
March 4th – 12th, 2019

Weekday Novena Masses ~ Noon & 7pm
Saturday & Sunday Novena Masses at Noon

In the waning days of winter, when we are tired and crave quiet, solitude and warmth
consider the comfort of the Novena of Grace.

This year the Novena of Grace is centered on the theme of: The Beatitudes

St. Francis Xavier offers nine days of prayer and retreat for those who find themselves weary and longing for God. Grounded in our celebration of the Eucharist, the Novena Masses will be held for nine consecutive days and feature a reflection by one of our guest presenters, Becky Nappi and Fr. Michael Weiler, S.J. There will be live music, and prayers of petition and thanksgiving through the intercession of St. Francis Xavier. We also offer individual prayer / blessings at the end of Mass, as well as the Sacrament of Reconciliation throughout the nine days. Although the Novena of Grace is a Catholic prayer tradition in Jesuit communities, it is open to people of all faiths. It affords all who participate time to reflect and to open one’s self to God’s Spirit and the healing grace that rejuvenates and transforms our lives.

No sign up is necessary. The event is free and open to all.
Thank you for joining us.
