Coronavirus Novena begins Friday March 20th

Please join in! You can also sign up for daily reminder emails if, like me, you tend to forget… :blush:


Thank you for posting the Novena.

Do you know if there’s a special time each day to pray the Novena or is it OK to pray it when we have the time?


Any of their other novenas are whenever you want.

Well, they are praying a Rosary tonight, I think at 9pm.


I’m in! Thanks for sharing.


Began the Novena today.

Please also remember those who have lost or will lose their employment because of this virus and are very fearful for themselves and their families.
