Pray With Us During the Solemn Novena to St. Jude

When we gather together to celebrate the Solemn Novena to St. Jude, we are engaging in one of the oldest and most remarkable
traditions of faith. For nine days we offer up our needs, our gratitude, and our hope. We trust in St. Jude to intercede for us,
and in this trust we can take great comfort.
