Immaculate Conception Novena As we prepare for the opening of the Jubilee Year of Mercy, promulgated by our Holy Father Pope Francis, join St. John's parish in praying the Novena of the Immaculate Conception through the intercession of our Blessed Mother Mary. The novena begins November 29 and runs for nine days to December 8, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception.
December 8 also opens the Jubilee Year of Mercy for our world. Please pray that we will continue to be people of mercy, families of mercy, a parish of mercy, a community of mercy and a world of mercy! May God's love and mercy take deeper root in each of our lives.
