Invitation: Presbyteral Ordination Novena | June 1-9

Of your charity, Deacon Corey Bilodeau and Deacon Shea Kettner invite you to pray a novena for them as they prepare for ordination to the sacred priesthood for the Diocese of Lansing at Saint Mary Cathedral on Saturday, June 10.

Hence, beginning today, Thursday, June 1, and concluding on Friday, June 9, they ask that you pray an Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be each day for the following intentions:

Day 1: In thanksgiving for our Baptism and sharing in the mission of Christ.

Day 2: For the grace to discern how God is calling us to know, love, and serve Him.

Day 3: For the grace to accept our calling generously.

Day 4: For those currently living a generous single life for the Lord.

Day 5: For the protection of our vocations from every diabolical attack.

Day 6: For the gift of holy marriages and families, the well-spring of vocations.

Day 7: For an abundance of ordained clergy to bring us the Sacraments.

Day 8: For the gift of religious sisters and brothers to serve the Church.

Day 9: For all in consecrated life (including third orders) who pray for us.

Our Lady, Queen of the Clergy, pray for them!
