Sacred Heart Novena 2017 | Missionaries of the Sacred Heart

Novena to the Sacred Heart 2017

The Feast of the Sacred Heart is fast approaching, and with it comes our special Novena to the Sacred Heart – a beautiful time of reflection when we bring our prayers and petitions before the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Our Novena of Masses runs for nine days, up to and including the Feast of the Sacred Heart. This year’s Novena will take place from Thursday, June 15th to Friday, June 23rd.

All are welcome to join in the Novena by watching our daily Masses live from the Sacred Heart Church in Cork. These Novena Masses will take place daily at 8.00am, 10.00am, and 8.00pm.
