Newbridge Parish Annual Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help begins on 14th March and runs for nine Mondays (excluding Easter Monday). All welcome.

Newbridge Parish Annual Novena Monday 14th March – 16th May

Every year our Annual Novena proves to be a wonderful occasion for the life of our parish. Due to the lateness of Easter, this year the Novena will be that little bit earlier and will include the Five Monday Evenings of Lent. On the Monday of Holy Week, the Novena will include a Penance Service in preparation for the celebration of The Triduum and Easter. There will be no Novena on Easter Monday. Our Parish Youth Group will host the Novena on Monday 02nd May, we very much encourage all our young people to come along on that particular evening, especially young people who will be sitting examinations this year. The theme of our Novena is taken from Prophet Jeremiah 9:11, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Our celebration will commence on each of the Monday evenings at 7:30 PM in Saint Conleth’s Church. We very much welcome your petitions that will be prayed for throughout the Novena, a special box will be provided in the church for petitions. We are thankful to the following who have agreed to share their reflections.

We very much welcome both young and old to join us for this special time of prayer in our parish.
