95th Novena of Grace March 4-12


This year marks the 95th Novena of Grace at St. Aloysius Parish in the midst of the Ignatian Year for the Society of Jesus and all of its ministries.

The theme of this year’s Novena is “Seeing All Things New in Christ” which is also the theme of the Ignatian Year. The homilists for the novena will represent all of the Jesuit ministries across the Inland Northwest.

Our reflections will focus on how we can see all things new in Christ through the four universal apostolic preferences of the Society of Jesus: Caring for Our Common Home, Showing the Way to God, Journeying with Youth, and Walking with the Excluded.

Please join us!

Those watching from home can add their petitions in the comments at the bottom of this page.

St. Francis Xavier Novena Prayer

Most lovable and loving St. Francis Xavier, in union with you, I adore the Divine Majesty. The remembrance of the favors with which God blessed you during life and of your glory after death, fills me with joy; and I unite with you in offering to God my tribute of thanksgiving and praise. I implore you to secure for me through your powerful intercessions, the great blessing of living and dying in the state of grace. I also beseech you to obtain the favors I ask in this novena (silent pause for individual petitions). But if what I ask is not for the glory of God or the good of my soul, obtain for me what is most conducive for both. Amen.
