Let us pray for your needs and intentions – you and members of your family, both living and deceased, will be remembered in the Novenas celebrated for your intentions and in the masses offered each day for you.

Do you or a loved one need healing?
Send your intentions for our Novena of Masses in honor of St. Peregrine!


Dear Friend,

If you or someone you love has ever received a difficult diagnosis, you know just how important it is to have support. Finding that support is not always easy, though.

Thankfully, God has given us a wonderful friend in St. Peregrine!

As the patron saint of those with cancer and other illnesses, St. Peregrine is always ready to hear your needs and intercede. His own cancer was cured through his deep faith. The night before surgery to remove the cancer from his leg, he prayed for a miracle and was granted a vision of Jesus reaching down from his cross to touch his leg. The next morning, his cancer was completely gone, never to return!

Today, centuries later, miracles are still attributed to his powerful prayers. So, if you know someone with cancer or another disease, I urge you to let the Franciscan Friars pray for them. Send your intentions today, and we’ll remember them in petition to St. Peregrine from May 1 to May 9, and in thanksgiving from May 10 to May 18.

In addition, we would be honored to remember you in our Novenas of Masses to St. Dymphna, patron saint of those with anxiety, dementia , and other mental illnesses. Our St. Dymphna Novenas will take place from May 7 to May 15 and from May 16 to May 24.

Be sure to send your intentions, so we can include them in our Novenas of Masses. Please also remember our missionaries among your intentions and if you are able, include an offering of any amount to assist their work here in the United States and in our missions in Central America.  May the Lord bless you and your loved ones with renewed health and well-being.

God bless your generous heart,


Fr. Robert, O.F.M.
