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.

It would be our honor to pray to St. Dymphna for you and your loved ones.

Dear Friend,

Are you battling an unseen struggle? Is a love one wrestling with mental anguish?
Mental health is an important part of our well-being, but ailments like anxiety, depression and dementia can burden our minds. Often, those struggles feel the most isolating.

On top of an anxieties that may have already been on your mind, the last few years have added extra uncertainty and worry. But I’m here to remind you that you’re not alone in your struggles, no matter what they are!

If you or a loved one is experiencing distress, I urge you to turn to our blessed St. Dymphna the patron saint of those struggling with mental and emotional pain.

St. Dymphna is a welcome refuge for those affected by mental troubles. When she was just a young girl, she built a hospital for the poor and sick. Although her life was short at 15 at the hands of her mentally ill father, we still turn to her for peace of mind and healing.

St. Dymphna is ready to offer you hope and encouragement today. Please send us your intentions so we may pray for them during our Novenas to St. Dymphna in petition, May 7 to May 15, and in thanksgiving, May 16 to May 24. A special Mass will also be offered on St. Dymphna’s feast day, May 15.

Thank you for your devotion to God’s children. I pray you find peace in His presence on your darkest day.

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.

Thank you for your devotion to God’s children. I pray you find peace in His presence on you darkest day.

God bless your generous heart,


Fr. Robert, O.F.M.

P.S. Please send your petitions for our Novena to St. Dymphna beginning May 7. We’re honored to join our prayers with yours as we offer heartfelt requests to this remarkable saint, patroness of all who are afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy or nervous disorders. God bless you!
