    Novena to the Holy Ghost

    This nine-day course of e-mails is designed to aid Catholics in praying the Novena to the Holy Ghost. Traditionally prayed between Ascension Thursday and Pentecost Sunday, this novena recalls the original novena prayed by the Apostles and the Blessed Virgin Mary as they awaited the coming of the Holy Spirit.

    If you wish to pray it in preparation for Pentecost, simply sign up on Ascension Thursday or the Friday or Saturday after. You will receive an e-mail with the first day's prayers shortly after you sign up.

    You can also pray this novena at anytime throughout the year. Simply sign up on the day that you wish to begin praying the novena.
