Sacred Heart Novena 2018 | Missionaries of the Sacred Heart

Novena to the Sacred Heart 2018

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, May 31st to Friday, June 8th.

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 10.00am and 8.00pm.

You can then submit your personal prayers and intentions online, and our MSC priests will remember your petitions specially throughout the course of the Novena.
