PENTECOST NOVENA 2017

 FRIDAY 26 MAY-SATURDAY 3 JUNE 2017 


A New Evangelisation is only possible in the power of a New Pentecost.


Welcome to the Pentecost Novena section of our webpages. Here you will find a range of resources, including templates for Prayer Services and a Guidance document, that have been developed to encourage and facilitate prayer. We are also encouraging our parishes and schools to engage with the Thy Kingdom Come ecumenical initiative. More information about this initiative and accompanying and resources are available via: https://www.thykingdomcome.global/


PREPARING FOR PENTECOST 2017: FRIDAY 26 MAY-SATURDAY 3 JUNE 2017


The prayer services below can be prayed before or after Mass or other liturgies, in prayer meetings, as part of other meetings or at home. They are suitable for use by Churches, prayer groups, families and individuals for their personal prayer.

Unlike previous years we will not be co-ordinating a schedule of prayer in the Diocese over the 9 days, but will leave communities, households and individuals free to pray as and when they can over the 9 days, whether that's one special event or more regular prayer over the 9 days.

It would be great however to hear from you before or after the event about what you have arranged in your own communities. 

We would like to encourage all of our parishes and schools to make use of these resources to support prayer in our communities in preparation for a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit for a New Evangelisation. 


Come Holy Spirit!


Yours as ever in the Lord
