Novena to Celebrate St. Raphaela Mary
Saint Raphaela Center will celebrate the May 18th feast of Saint Raphaela Mary, foundress of the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, by concluding daily Vespers with the Novena from Friday, May 9th through Saturday, May 17th in the chapel at the center. All are invited. The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed from 5:00 pm each day so that you may join the sisters in silent Adoration. At 5:20 pm, community and friends will pray Vespers (Evening Prayer). Your written petitions will be placed at Saint Raphaela Mary’s statue each day. Please join us. Certainly, you may visit chapel earlier than 5:00 pm. He welcomes you all day long!
Prayer for each day:
Saint Raphaela Mary of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, you lived as such a close friend of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Teach us to do everything in God’s presence with a large heart and peaceful, energetic outlook. Obtain for us the graces we are asking as long as they are for God’s greater glory. Through Jesus Christ our Lord and brother. Amen.
See each day’s prayer.
