A novena is when either an individual or group say prayers for nine days for a special intention. The nine days reminds us of how the disciples spent nine days in the upper room after Jesus ascended to heaven whilst they waited for the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. For more information about the history of novenas click here.
Each day we will include a prayer, music or video connected with the Holy Spirit, for a copy of a novena to the Holy Spirit click here
Day 1: Creation awaits fulfilment
Holy Spirit, Lord of light!
From Your clear celestial height,
Your pure' beaming radiance give!
Almighty and eternal God, send forth Your Spirit, who brought order from chaos at
the beginning of the universe, and peace to the Lord's disciples.
Grant that I, as your creation, baptized in your Spirit, may be filled with the seven
gifts so that I may forever do your will and renew the face of the earth. Amen.
Please keep our young people in your prayers
