Novena to our Lady of Perpetual Help

Portlaoise Parish

2 weeks before Ash Wednesday 2014, begins a wonderful 9 week Novena in St. Peter and Paul’s Church.

This is an occasion of great blessing for our parish community to gather together in prayer and worship every Wednesday evening at 7:30pm for the celebration of Eucharist.

An important element to this Novena will be praying for personal petitions.

These petitions will be remembered and prayed for throughout the Nine Week Novena.

We are delighted each week to welcome such excellent speakers who will speak words of hope and encouragement to us as we grow in our friendship with the Lord.

Very soon in our Parish Church, petitions will be available for you to record your very personal requests to our Blessed Mothers intercession.
