St. Jude Journal – February 2023

Our Solemn Novena to St. Jude is a meaningful way to respond to God’s invitation to continually deepen our relationship with Him. We hold our simple prayer, “St. Jude, pray for us,” close to our hearts as we honor the blessings and ask for help with the challenges.

We offer our needs and petitions to St. Jude for intercession. Novena prayer gives us a significant path for drawing even closer to God by expressing our trust and hope in Him over a dedicated nine-day commitment. We are grateful God has gifted us with our devotion, and our Novena prayer is a reflection of the grace that gift brings to our lives.

To honor the hope of St. Jude and continue to nurture our trust in God, we will celebrate the Solemn Novena to St. Jude, February 11th—19th, at the National Shrine of St. Jude. These nine days of Novena prayer give us another opportunity in our lives to receive the strength of the Holy Spirit.

Join in the Novena by sending your special intentions and we will deliver your petitions to the altar of St. Jude at the National Shrine, where they will be remembered in our Masses and prayers throughout the Novena.

May God bless you during the Solemn Novena as we respond to God’s call to prayer.
