PASTORAL AREA NOVENA
Following the Ascension of Our Lord, tradition says that the disciples gathered in the upper room together with Mary for nine days of prayer in anticipation of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. This is the original novena.
Today, as disciples of Jesus, we too join together in prayer for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our parishes, our schools, our families, and in ourselves.
The format of the Novena will be: Invocation to the Holy Spirit, a daily theme to focus on, a Scripture reading related to the theme and a concluding prayer. Priests, deacons and lay people from the different parishes in the Pastoral Area will lead the novena.
