Immaculate Conception Novena

The Novena preparing for the Immaculate Conception begins today.

She is the Queen of the New Evangelization.

The Church invites us "trusting in the help of Mary, the Church in America desires to lead the men and women of the continent to encounter Christ. This encounter will be the starting-point of authentic conversion and of renewed communion and solidarity. Such an encounter will contribute greatly to strengthening the faith of many Catholics, helping them to mature in strong, lively and active faith. (Pope John Paul II, Apostolic Exhortation Ecclesia in America)

Each day a reading with a theme will be posted

Please make the Novena, both with prayer and with other ways that are suitable for you to prepare for the celebration (This year the feast will be on Monday, December 9)
