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.

Our Current Novenas

August 2019



Saint Jude and Saint Monica

Dear Friend,

Sometimes life is hard. Sometimes it is filled with joy. And throughout it all, we can turn to Our Lord Jesus in faith, who loves us unconditionally.

We can also turn to Saint Jude, patron saint of hopeless cases, and ask him to intercede on our behalf for the petitions we hold in our hearts.

What is troubling you today? If you are praying for the health of a loved one or yourself, the return to the church of a beloved grandchild, or the healing of a neighbor grieving the loss of her husband, Saint Jude hears you. Saint Jude has proven again and again he is a faithful friend in times of need.

This September, in gratitude for his constant friendship, please join us in honoring Saint Jude, patron saint of the impossible, during two special Novenas of Masses.

The Novena in petition will be offered September 2-10
The Novena in thanksgiving will be offered September 11-19.

I hope you will participate in the Novenas and join thousands of your fellow devotees of Saint Jude in a worldwide expression of the infinite power of prayer.

Please also include your petitions for the intercession of Saint Monica, who comes to the aid of troubled parents, mothers, widows and people faced with addictions and abuse, and join us in Novena prayers from August 19 to her feast day on August 27.

Kindly send your personal petitions and intentions to me now to be included in these Novenas of Masses. My brother friars and I will include you and your urgent needs in our daily prayers. 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. Your gift will truly make a difference in the lives of those we serve.

Thank you and may your life be filled with joy and peace.

Yours in St. Jude,


Fr. Robert, O.F.M.
