St. Andrew Christmas Novena

Happy Feast Day of St. Andrew!

The St. Andrew Christmas Novena or the Christmas Anticipation Novena begins TODAY, November 30th and goes until Christmas Eve, December 24th. The novena prayer is prayed 15 x’s per day. This novena is a medieval novena with a legacy. Stories and legends surround this novena. Tradition states that woman through the ages petitioned Our Lord the Christ Child for assistance in finding a husband. But the novena can be prayed for many reasons.

We are excited to announce that the next novena we will pray as a community is the Christmas Novena!

This novena is dedicated every year to praying for an end to abortion.

There is no better time than to reflect on the most vulnerable of this world than during Advent and Christmas when we prepare for the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, who comes to us as a small baby.

We will begin praying on Wednesday, December 16th.

You can ask your friends & family to sign up here:

Lord our God, we praise you for your Son, Jesus Christ:
He is Emmanuel, the hope of the peoples,
He is the wisdom that teaches and guides us,
He is the Savior of every nation.
Lord God, let your blessing come upon us
as we light the candles of this wreath.
May the wreath and its light
be a sign of Christ’s promise to bring us salvation.
May he come quickly and not delay.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
R/. Amen
