Pray the Solemn Novena to St. Jude

As a Novena devotee of St. Jude, your prayers are especially meaningful. By setting aside time for these nine days of Solemn Novena Prayer, you are making way for the intercession of St. Jude in your heart and life. We encourage you to click on and view the Novena slide show and share with your family and friends on your website, blog or social networking profile, such as Facebook or Twitter.

Praying the Solemn Novena

A Novena is a prayer repeated for nine consecutive days. A Novena can just as well be accomplished in nine consecutive hours of one day, or be spread out to include one day each week for nine consecutive weeks. No fixed rules need to be set for making a Novena, other than to persevere in the prayer.

As devotees of St. Jude, our Solemn Novena prayer is offered in gratitude and love for this saint, an apostle of Christ, and his intercession. Our devotion to St. Jude encourages us to have hopeful hearts that God will provide for our needs. Like our patron St. Jude, we strive to bring compassion, hope, and the love of God to others.

Through prayers and devotion in the Solemn Novena, we bring St. Jude into our lives and share our prayers, petitions, thanksgivings, and special intentions. We ask St. Jude to join his prayers with ours and we share in the faith that he interecedes on our behalf. May God bless you always in your devotion to St. Jude.
