Pray to St. Jude during the Solemn Novena
Dear Friend of St. Jude,
I want to remind you that it’s not too late to send your intentions for the Solemn Novena to St. Jude that runs through October 25th at the National Shrine of St. Jude. St. Jude calls us all to experience the intercessory power of Novena prayer in our lives.
I also want to remind you to join the faithful in prayer, meditation, and song during the Solemn Novena Mass filmed at the National Shrine of St. Jude.
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.
DAY 1 -- Saturday, October 17
Today we center ourselves in peace as we begin nine days of Solemn Novena healing prayer. St. Jude listens to our prayers, and offers us hope when we become weary.

On this 29th Sunday of Ordinary Time, we come together in prayer with a special healing intention to St. Jude.
