Novena to the Holy Spirit

All in the Harvest of Hope are invited to join in praying a novena to the Holy Spirit together during the nine days leading up to Pentecost this year. This tradition dates back when Jesus’ disciples gathered to pray together for nine days after his Ascension into heaven until the descent of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost.
Novena to the Holy Spirit
We are praying this novena to ask for the gifts of the Holy Spirit to be made manifest in our parishes and for the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to guide us as we travel together as a community.
Feel free to download any of these resources or stop by your parish to pick-up a prayer card.

Novena Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful.
And kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.
And you will renew the face of the earth.

Lord,
by the light of the Holy Spirit
you have taught the hearts of your faithful.
In the same Spirit
help us to relish what is right
and always rejoice in your consolation.

Pour forth the wisdom and gifts of the Spirit on our Harvest of Hope community and set our hearts on fire with your love.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.    Amen.
