Thank You for Your Interest in the Healing and Hope Novena

I am overjoyed that you wish to join us in prayer and honor this 80-year tradition of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate.

Please use the form below to receive our free novena emails to your inbox daily from July 28 – August 5.

Each email will include:

  • Gospel Passages from the day’s readings
  • A reflection on Mary’s guidance taken from the writings of various Oblates
  • A special prayer to prayer we can pray together for the day’s topic
  • A link to join our live stream of the Evening Mass

Mary the Dawn, Christ the Perfect Day

Our email program will be a supplement to the evening Masses at the Shrine. I encourage you to join my brother Oblates at these masses in person if you can. If you cannot be with us in person, please join us in spirit and watch the livestream here.

The Masses will be inspired by the ancient Marian hymn “Mary the Dawn” during the Novena. In the beautiful verses of this ancient hymn, we are all reminded that Mary takes care of all our concerns by taking them to Jesus. We will ask for Mary’s intercession for healing and hope in a particular area of life each night.
