August Novena to St. Jude

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Dear Friend of St. Jude,

I invite you to join us in prayer during the Solemn Novena to St. Jude for Healing, August 12th—20th.

As word of Jesus’ healing spread, people came great distances to hear Him speak and with hope of being fortunate enough to possibly feel His touch. Some of the people who came were in need of healing, but many who came were caregivers—concerned family and friends—praying in support of their loved one.

During this special Healing Novena, we will offer petitions to St. Jude to help our family and friends experience the gentle and healing touch of Christ.

Today I have sent you all nine days of prayer in one message. Please save or print this message and return to it each day of the Solemn Novena to St. Jude. You can also view the Novena prayers on our website and send your petitions to the altar of St. Jude.
