March 4th – 12th Weekdays at Noon and 7:00 pm Saturday & Sunday at Noon Livestream planed for Noon
The Novena is nine days of prayer and retreat hosted by St. Francis Xavier Parish in honor of our patron saint and one of the Church’s most famous missionaries, Saint Francis Xavier, who is also one of the founders of the Society of Jesus, the Jesuits.
The Novena of Grace will feature inspiring reflections from our presenters, Father Tom Lankenau, S.J. and Sheri Boicourt. This year’s theme comes from Psalm 46: “Be still and know that I am God” which suggests that, when we surrender to God, we find peace even in the midst of the busyness of life.
You are invited to bring the special intentions of your heart to the Novena, so that, through the powerful intercession of St. Francis Xavier, your hopes and desires may lead to whatever is most conducive to the greater glory of God and the greater good of your soul.
While the Novena of Grace is a Catholic prayer tradition, we welcome people of all traditions and faiths. It offers all who participate the time to reflect and to open one’s self to the graces of the Spirit that move us closer to God.
May God bless you with many gifts this Novena of Grace,
C. Hightower, SJ
