“Embracing the Lord
in order to embrace hope:
that is the strength of faith,
which frees us from fear
and gives us hope.”   

-Pope Francis, March 27, 2020

Novena of Grace:   Turn To the Waters of Life
Tuesday, March 10 - Wednesday, March 18, 2020

Retreat Presenters:
Gerry Scully, Mary Pauline Diaz-Frasene, and Fr. Mike Bayard, SJ

Deepen your experience of Lent this year by entering into the Novena of Grace, a retreat that can be made amid the busyness of daily life. Take some time each day to make the retreat online. Be inspired by the preaching of three presenters steeped in the Ignatian tradition and vision, offer up your deepest desires in prayer, and join a faith-filled community virtually. Pray with us any or all of the nine days to experience God’s abundant grace! Visit www.ignatiancenter.org/novenaofgrace to access a prayer booklet, submit prayer petitions, listen to beautiful music, and be inspired by the presenters' reflections.


On September 3, 2019, Pope Francis appointed Archbishop Paul D. Etienne to lead our diocese.
