Election Novena

Come together in prayer for the election. 

It is always important for people of faith to vote. As Christians, we are called to participate in public life and to contribute to the common good.
 

“We cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism and exclusion in any form and yet claim to defend the sacredness of every Life.”
Pope Francis – On the Death of George Floyd, June 3, 2020

 
As we approach Election Day 2020, it is most important for us to make this journey in prayer. We know that the elections are very important for the future of our country so we invite you to join us in asking God for guidance as we journey toward November 3.
 
Please join us for a Novena of prayer before the Elections and an Octave of prayer following the elections.
  • A Novena from the Latin novem meaning nine, is a series of nine prayers over the course of nine consecutive days or week. It can be a time of preparation for the celebration of the feast of a saint. It can also lead up to an important event or be occasioned by a grave need.
     
  • An Octave, from the Latin octo meaning eight is a series of eight days of prayers either preceding or following an important celebration such as Christmas or Easter. 
     
The results of the election will give some cause for celebrations, others will perhaps struggle.  We invite you to join us in asking God that we may overcome our difference and together build the kind of world God has in mind for us. Let us, together, create a revolution of love and tenderness. 
 
“Each of us by virtue of our baptism, is called to be an active presence in society, inspiring it with the Gospel and with the lifeblood of the Holy Spirit.” 
Pope Francis – Angelus on October 18, 2020
