St. Gregory the Great Novena

Join us, together with our family, in praying a 9-day Novena beginning on his feast day, September 3, for our family, faith and generosity. Following the conclusion of the Novena, our family of parishes will come together at Mt. Saint Mary’s Seminary for a Mass and reception on September 12.


St. Gregory the Great, patron saint of teachers,

present our prayer of gratitude to our Heavenly Father.

Share our prayer of wisdom and guidance

as we continue on the path to unify our family of parishes.

Just as you led the faithful knowing “the proof of love is in the works”,

open our hearts to be dedicated disciples of Jesus

through prayer, teaching, sacraments and service.

May our works, inspired by Jesus,

guide us to unity within our family and love within our community.

Teach us humility and compassion, the cornerstones of generosity,

and the unwavering faith you demonstrated through times of change,

so that we come together in unity, rooted in Christ’s love.
