Citywide Holy Spirit Novena & Youth Rally

  • 07:00 PM

Nine Nights: May 11-19 

To prepare for the celebration of Pentecost, May 20, Mount Mercy University is collaborating with young adults, Catholic Evagelization Outreach (CEO), youth minististers and parishes in the area to plan a citywide Novena to the Holy Spirit. Novena is a nine-day prayer for specific intentions. The traditions of Novena to the Holy Spirit goes back to the Lord’s instruction to the apostles and early disciples to wait in Jerusalem for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:6-14).

Activities each night include:

  • Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament
  • Praise and Worship
  • Talk on the Holy Spirit
  • Intercessions

Note: Sunday, May 13th event at Mt. Mercy will begin at 8:00 PM and the Novena talk will be the homily for that night’s Mass (Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord).


  • May 11-13: Mt Mercy Chapel
  • May 14-16: TBD
  • May 17-19: St. Patrick Parish Center (CR)

The Novena will conclude with a Youth Rally. You are welcome to attend each night or as often as you can.
