Prayer is a most powerful tool in seeking God’s grace and blessings. This Novena for the success of the Lourdes Spiritual Pilgrimage is a wonderful way for participants to prepare for this pilgrimage. The Novena is recommended to be said nine days leading up to the Spiritual Pilgrimage.  Please pray for all our past Malades and their Caregivers and all those who have asked for our prayers. The Novena begins on Tuesday, April 20th.
