The Catholic Encyclopedia defines a Novena as "nine days' of private or public devotion in the Catholic Church to obtain special graces."

The heart of any Novena is the same as the first one, called by our Lord Himself. "He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father." (Acts 1:4, emphasis mine)

When we pray a Novena, we either pray the same prayer for all nine days or follow a list of prayers to be prayed for each day. Every novena is a bit different in the intention, formation of prayers and practice.

We invite you to join us at Catholic Online School in these times of focused prayer called Novenas.

“Deacon Keith, I enjoyed the class Novena to Our Lady of Fatima for Conversion. Especially Saint Paul telling us to pray without ceasing. I thought praying without stopping was really Pentecostal. I'm going to see if I can be a Brother, as I feel the Lord has always called me. The Novena to Our Lady of Fatima for Conversion is very important to our Church and our lives and to the Lord. Having the Novena to Our Lady of Fatima for Conversion study guide was a highlight of the course for me. Yours In Christ, Greg Bennett”
