I'm a little late to the party, but just a quick note to encourage you to begin the novena to St. Therese, our patroness, today so that we will all finish on her feast day, Oct. 1st. This is a wonderful opportunity to grow closer to Therese and to pray for our people and our parish. She is fully committed to living our her Heaven by helping us here on earth to get to Heaven. So don't be afraid to ask her for help! Below is a version of the novena from EWTN that I've found to be quite good over the years.
So let's storm Heaven with our prayers, through the intercession of our little, yet very powerful friend! God bless!
