Our Blessed Mother continues to be a model of great faith, a woman who accepted God’s will in her life despite the many trials and challenges, despite times of great uncertainty and great sorrow. This year alone has given us many challenges, uncertainty and sorrows. Join us for these nine special nights of prayer, and find hope knowing that despite all of the obstacles and pain Mary endured, God was always with her, as God remains with us.

All nine Novena Masses will be livestreamed and recorded.

Each evening will close with praying the rosary as a community, with an outdoor procession with the statue of Our Lady .
