It is highly suggested that the confirmation candidate, the family of the candidate,
the candidate's sponsor, & whoever else you want to join in prayer for this novena.
This Year's Novena will run from April 20th-28th.
What is a Novena?
The idea of a ‘novena’ - nine days of prayer began with the time period between Jesus’ Ascension and Pentecost. In that time, the disciples were in hiding out of fear, trying to figure out what to do next, but also gathered in prayer. The coming of the Holy Spirit on the tenth day, as the Lord had promised, answered their questions. Filled with the power of the Spirit and given its gifts, they began to witness to the Lord’s death and resurrection far and near. CLICK HERE FOR THE CONFIRMATION NOVENA
