Novena to the Holy Spirit and Knights of Columbus Pentecost Party

Novena to the Holy Spirit and  Knights of Columbus Pentecost Party

Please pray a novena to the Holy Spirit, beginning after the Feast of Ascension May 30th  to June 8th, 2019. At the Ascension, Jesus asked the disciples to wait for the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit came at Pentecost 9 days later, and the custom of praying for 9 days or a particular prayer 9 times began.  Pray the Novena to the Holy Spirit. (A few copies will be provided in the church).  As a parish, we shall celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit and the birthday of the church with our Pentecost party. All parishioners are invited to a Pentecost celebration and Knights of Columbus "Family Fun" night on Saturday, June 8, following the 4:15pm Mass at Blessed Sacrament.  The Knights will provide a free meal, games will be available for the children, and all men of the parish are encouraged to attend to learn more about the Knights of Columbus.  During this party, we shall celebrate parish blessings including those who joined the Catholic church and our parish in the last year. As the faith is born a new in our hearts, we shall celebrate with praise and worship, food, fire, and candle light procession. The brief ceremony will conclude with benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.   All are welcome!
