Runs May 26-June 3, 2017
The Apostles prayed the first Novena! A novena is nine days of prayer, and after the Ascension of the Lord Jesus into heaven, the apostles spent time waiting for the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.
This year, St. John's will again be making a Novena to the Holy Spirit we put aside the period of May 26-June 3 as a time to "watch, wait, and pray" for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our hearts and in our lives. Each day at Mass we will pray the Novena following Communion as we focus on the gifts of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
However, families are encouraged to make the novena at home. Parish groups are encouraged to pray the novena together as part of your meetings. The staff will be praying together each day as well. Individuals can privately make the novena.
We encourage you to make the Novena with the following intentions in mind:
- A personal openness to an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in your personal life, that you might actively utilize the Spirit's gifts in your calling as a missionary disciple of Jesus Christ;
- Our parish leadership, that the Holy Spirit may work through it (clergy, staff, and lay leaders) as we prepare to activate one of the first nine pastorates in the Archdiocese of Baltimore as part of the comprehesive pastoral planning project;
- All who make up St. John's parish community, that our parish may be open to the Spirit that compels us to be a vibrant force in our world dedicated to making Jesus known to our neighbors as we strive to move from maintenance to mission-based priorities, living out the joy of the Gospel.
As we find ourselves in a pivotal time in our parish's history, let's keep the Lord and Giver of Life at the center of all that we do. Click the link to download the novena and pray it each day!
