Pray to St. Jude during the February 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 takes place through February 14th 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.
