Novena for Faithful Citizenship

The USCCB is inviting Catholics to pray a novena for life, justice, and peace called the Novena for Faithful Citizenship before the November election. It is available as a podcast you can listen to or as text.

Options for praying the Novena for Faithful Citizenship:

—Start on September 2 and pray for nine consecutive Tuesdays, up until the general election.
—Start the Novena on any day of the week, whenever people gather, and pray on that day every week.
—Begin praying the Novena on October 26, nine days before the election, and continue each consecutive day.
—Create any combination that works for you and your community—and feel free to pray the Novena more than once (1 Thes 5:17).

The novena can be printed or listened to at
