A Novena for the Safety, Peace and Welfare of our Nation as We Prepare for the Transition of Government During These Troubled Times

Dear Parish Family:

Peace and greetings to you! In the Gospel for this Sunday, Jesus says to his disciples, ”Come and See.” Every four years, we are invited to “ Come and See,” as our country embarks in a new era with the Inauguration in Washington, DC. As Catholics and Christians, we have an obligation to pray for our leaders. Let us pray for President Trump and Vice-President Pence as they transition and leave office. Let us pray for President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris and for the new Congress. May they seek wisdom and perseverance as they address the challenging issues facing our nation. Let’s pray for all of us as citizens of this democracy. Everyone needs and is deserving of our prayers!

Please join me and Catholics around the nation in offering the following Novena for the safety, peace and welfare of our nation! Let’s entrust our prayers to our Beloved, Blessed Mother, the Patroness of these United States!

Peace, Msgr. Kevin
