Novena for Pentecost Sunday begins

Please join us in preparation for Pentecost by enrolling in our Novena (May 27 - June 4) and praying along with us. (A link will follow shortly, so that you might pray the same prayer as we will in the Shrine Church each day.)


We invite you to please join us as we pray in preparation for this Sacred Event on May 23.

Follow the example of the original "Novena" ("9 days") when the Apostles prayed in the 9 days leading up to a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. Before Jesus ascended to heaven, He promised He wouldn't leave them alone (John 14:16). Once the Apostles received the gifts of the Holy Spirit, their grief was turned into joy (John 16:20) and they boldly proclaimed the mighty acts of God to people of every language (Acts 2:4). Submit a special intention for this Novena praying for a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
