Novena & Healing Mass

In addition to our regular Lenten activities, we will host a novena and Healing Mass, designed especially for those who have cancer. The novena will begin Monday, March 12 at 6:00pm and end with Mass on March 20th at 6:00pm.

Each evening in between, the church will be open for one hour for adoration and prayer. Please feel free to come and light a candle on the Taize display for your loved one and their families who are experiencing any illness, but especially cancer. The novena prayer will be read at the end of the hour.

Following the Healing Mass, Fr. Kubista and Fr. Cory will anoint all of those who are suffering from any sickness. We will also have two prayer teams; everyone is invited to be prayed over. Both priests will join our prayer teams after they have finished with the anointings.

Contact Laura Stierman with questions or to volunteer to read the short novena prayer on one evening.

NEW Prayer Opportunity

St. Jude Family in Christ,
Fr. Cory has encouraged us to increase our prayer in order to become a parish of prayer.  We are also continuing to develop our Mission: "To be a place of healing and raising up champions for Christ." With these two initiatives in mind, we are beginning a monthly St. Jude Healing Novena which begins on the 20th and ends on the 28th of each month. This Healing Novena will be delivered daily to your inbox through an "Opt In"  request. If you would like to pray for those who need healing, we encourage you to click on the link below.

Reasons for healing may take many forms; injury, illness, cancer, divorce, death/widowed, depression, drugs, surgeries, etc. Prayer requests will be taken online in two ways: (1) You may submit your own name and reason for healing; or (2) After receiving permission, you may submit the name of another person and reason for healing.

Our patron saint, St. Jude, is known as the saint of Lost Causes and Hope. He was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus and his Feast Day is October 28th. Many miracles have been attributed to the intercession of St. Jude to our Lord, Jesus Christ.
