Pray: Novena for Diaconal Ordinands, May 4-12, 2023

Please join us in praying a Novena, nine days of prayer, for the following men who are due to be ordained to the diaconate for the Diocese of Lansing on Saturday, May 13, Feast of Our Lady of Fatima. They are:

James Collom, Joshua Fons, John Goff, Bill Kenney, Riley O’Shea, Eric Pogrmich, Ray Rzepecki, David Taccolini, Art Williams, and Jasen Wright.

Beginning today, Thursday, May 4, and concluding on Friday, May 12, let us all pray an Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be each day for the following intentions:

Day 1: In thanksgiving for our Baptism and sharing in the mission of Christ.

Day 2: For the grace to discern how God is calling us to know, love, and serve Him.

Day 3: For the grace to accept our calling generously.

Day 4: For those currently living a generous single life for the Lord.

Day 5: For the protection of our vocations from every diabolical attack.

Day 6: For the gift of holy marriages and families, the well-spring of vocations.

Day 7: For an abundance of ordained clergy to bring us the Sacraments.

Day 8: For the gift of religious sisters and brothers to serve the Church.

Day 9: For all in consecrated life (including third orders) who pray for us.


Let us pray:

Hear us, we beseech you, Lord, our God,

and pour out on these your servants the blessing of the Holy Spirit,

that these men, who are to be consecrated to your service,

may be surrounded by your rich and unfailing grace.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen!
