Bishop Loverde invites all to join him in a novena of prayer and penance from March 14 to March 22, the day preceding the oral arguments in the Little Sisters of the Poor case before the U. S. Supreme Court.
In addition, Bishop Loverde invites all members of our diocesan family to join him in prayerful observance of each of the First Fridays of April, May, and June. Participation should include taking part in the Holy Mass, some form of penance, and invoking the intercessory prayer of the Lord Jesus Whose Sacred Heart continues to beat with love for the conversion of those still blind. A holy hour is likewise encouraged on these First Fridays. For more information please go to the Novena of Prayer and Penance March 14-22, 2016 tab.
