St. Peregrine Novena

St. Peregrine Novena at St. Catherine's

St. Peregrine Novena
St. Peregrine is the patron saint of persons suffering from illnesses of all types, in particular, cancer.

St. Peregrine was healed of a cancerous ulcer on his leg which was considered beyond saving. The fame of this event in 1325 spread rapidly around the western Church.

Christians, and especially the sick, began to invoke his name and seek his intercession for the relief of their suffering and even for a cure from sickness. The canonization of St. Peregrine in 1726 increased people's devotion to him which spread to the universal Church.

St. Catherine of Alexandria will begin offering a novena to St. Peregrine at 7:00 pm in the church. The novena will be held for 9 Mondays. All are welcome to participate.
