The Novena to the Holy Spirit

Archbishop Cushley is inviting Catholics to prepare for Pentecost Sunday by praying a Novena to the Holy Spirit.

At Mass on Ascension Thursday, he said:

“We enter into the nine days – the original novena of prayer – for the gift of the Holy Spirit, with our Lady and the Apostles. This year we are joined by Christians across the world through a project called Thy Kingdom Come.

“We are all praying for a renewed outpouring of the gift of the Holy Spirit. So as we celebrate this beautiful feast today let’s take time to think about setting aside the next nine days to pray that the Holy Spirit be renewed within us.”
