Novena to Prepare for Newman's Canonization

As the date of Newman's canonization nears, I wanted to make sure you knew about the Novena beginning this Friday, October 4, the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, in preparation for the great event on Sunday, October 13 in Rome.

The Catholic Herald posted the entire nine days of prayer here.

If you want to receive daily email reminders, sign up here on the official website for the canonization, set up by the Oratories in England:

All over the world, people are preparing to celebrate the canonisation of Blessed John Henry Newman on Sunday 13th October.

This is a time of special grace for us to join together and form links in a great chain of prayer, where we call upon the soon-to-be-Saint to crown our prayers with his intercession in heaven.

We encourage you to form links in that chain by joining in our Novena with Newman - nine days of prayerful preparation for the canonisation, starting on Friday 4th October and finishing on Saturday 12th October on the eve of the canonisation.
