Nine Nights of Prayer
August 7th through August 15th
Nightly at 8:00 pm
Join us for this special time of prayer as we
observe a novena in anticipation of the
Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The format of the prayer service, which lasts about twenty minutes, is from the Liturgy of the Hours. Night Prayer is the final “hour” of the day, and includes the Canticle of Simeon from the old man Simeon, who greets Mary, Joseph, and the child Jesus in the Temple at the time of his ritual circumcision as the first-born child.
This prayer and evangelization initiative started in the Diocese in 2021 and has been well-received in the parishes and areas where it has taken place. All are welcome (and encouraged) to take part in this special prayer time. The final evening concludes with an ice cream social sponsored by the Parish Life Office of the Diocese! Hope to see you there!
