Begin praying novena for Uganda

Event details

  • All Day

This is the time of year we join together in a novena for our brothers and sisters at St. Paul’s in Mukono, Uganda. This year let’s focus our prayer on their critical needs during the coronavirus pandemic.

Please join us in this prayer beginning May 25 every day leading up to June 3, the feast day of the Ugandan Martyrs. What a beautiful opportunity, as the body of Christ, to ask the intercession of these special saints to answer their prayers. Thank you!

O Lord Jesus Christ, who wonderfully strengthened the Holy Martyrs of Uganda St. Charles Lwanga, and their companions; and gave them to us as examples of faith and fortitude, chastity, charity, and fidelity; grant, we beseech Thee, that by their intercession, the same virtues may increase in us and in our brothers and sisters in Mukono, Uganda and that we may deserve to become propagators of the true faith. Please help our Ugandan friends as they face the coronavirus and its effects with courage and steadfast faith. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns in the world without end. Amen.

Thank you for your prayers.
