Novena of Grace
March 12-20, 2019, Chapel of St. Ignatius and St. Joseph Church
Take just one hour a day to attend a weekday liturgy, either here at the Chapel (Eucharist) or St. Joseph Church (contemplative prayer), or make the retreat online. Be inspired by the preaching of three presenters steeped in the Ignatian tradition and vision, offer up your deepest desires in prayer, and join a faith-filled community to pray together. Attend one, any or all of the nine days to experience God’s abundant grace! There is no cost for this program. The full schedule and more information can be found at the link above.
