Buffalo, New York – Corpus Christi Church will be offering nine days of prayers to the Holy Spirit, beginning on Friday May 22 after the 11:30 a.m. Mass. Known as a novena in the Catholic faith, this series of devotions is a special form of prayer, generally for a particular intention.
The novena in honor of the Holy Spirit is the oldest of all novenas, since it was first made at the direction of our Lord Himself when He sent His apostles back to Jerusalem to await the coming of the Holy Spirit on the first Pentecost. It is still the only novena officially prescribed by the Roman Catholic Church. Addressed to the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, it is a powerful plea for the light, strength and love so sorely needed by every Christian.
All are invited to join in this constant prayer! For additional information, call (716)896-1050 or visit the website at www.corpuschristibuffalo.org.
