Novena of Grace
The Novena of Grace is an annual celebration of Mass held daily for nine consecutive days featuring a reflection by a guest presenter, live music, and prayers of petition and thanksgiving through the intercession of St. Francis Xavier. Individual blessings are offered at the end of Mass, as well as the sacraments of reconciliation and the anointing of the sick at various points of the retreat.
While the Novena of Grace is a Catholic tradition in Jesuit communities, it is open to people of all faiths. It affords time to reflect and to open one’s self to God’s Spirit and the healing grace that rejuvenates and transforms our lives. No sign up is necessary: the event is free and open to all.
