On behalf of the Redemptorist Community and our team, I welcome you warmly to this year’s Solemn Novena in honour of St Gerard.

This year our Novena returns as an in-person event, and there is a great sense of excitement growing in the community. May it be that powerhouse of prayer that it has always been.

Please send in your petitions and join us as we renew our hope and faith. This year we focus on Pope Francis book “Let us dream.” There is a real challenge in our Church, but this is a great movement of Spirit. And we listen and discern the voices of the faithful under the guidance of the Spirit of Truth. God is close; life is a gift; and through St Gerard’s intercession, may God bless each of you abundantly over these nine day.

With every good wish and blessing.

Fr. Noel
