Our pastor, Fr. Gerard, has requested a parish-wide commitment to pray the Holy Spirit Novena.
Novena booklets will be distributed at church. There are also two versions online which you can read each day:
1st: ‘Novena to the Holy Spirit by Holy Ghost Fathers’ (Traditional/Formal Prayer)
4th entry on Google: https://archive.org/details/novenatoholyghos00holy
2nd: ‘Novena to the Holy Spirit: Help Me To Know You’ by George E. Schulhoff,
A.H.S. (Conversational Style with the Holy Spirit) http://aoths.org/novena-to-the-holy-spirit.aspx
Following 5 pm, 9 am and 11:30 am Masses on Pentecost Weekend, St. James Prayer Ministers will pray over anyone in the assembly who desires a deeper outpouring of the Holy Spirit in their lives. Let us each open our heart to yield in complete surrender to the workings of the Holy Spirit.
