Hearing Our Story Anew: A Novena of Grace

St. Ignatius Parish is excited to announce this year’s Novena presenters and theme. We welcome Sean Michaelson, SJ, assistant for formation for the Oregon Province of the Society of Jesus; Don Clarke, campus minister at Jesuit High School in Portland; and St. Ignatius parishioner Brittany Wilmes. They will give reflections on this year’s theme: Hearing Our Story Anew: A Novena of Grace from March 5-13.  

Please view details below and visit http://www.novenaofgrace.com/ to learn more about this beautiful tradition and how you can participate.            

What is the Novena of Grace?

The Novena of Grace is grounded in our celebration of the Eucharist. Masses are held daily for nine consecutive days and feature a reflection by one of our guest presenters, live music, and prayers of petition and thanksgiving through the intercession of St. Francis Xavier. We also offer individual blessings at the end of Mass, as well as the sacraments of reconciliation and the anointing of the sick at various points of the retreat. Though 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.

BLESSINGS

 At the vow cross2end of every Mass except the final day, you may receive an individual blessing with a Jesuit vow crucifix. Come forward to a minister holding the vow cross and ask for a specific gift from God. The minister will put the cross in your hands and pray for the grace you request. Some ask for healing from a serious illness or a broken heart. Some pray for employment or world peace. There is no limit, so freely ask your heart’s deepest desire.

 

FREEWILL OFFERING
