14th Annual Novena

“Each year, the Association shall keep a novena for the perpetuation of the Traditional Latin Liturgy from 29th September to 7th October.” From the Statutes of St. Conleth’s Catholic Heritage Association.

In 1996, in preparation for their first request to the Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin for the regular provision of the Traditional Latin Mass for the people of the Diocese on Sundays and Holydays of Obligation, a novena of prayer and penitence was made. The letter was delivered to the Bishop’s House on the last day of the novena. Incidentally, that request remains unfulfilled.

This year, the theme of the novena is: "O my God, I burn with desire for the sanctification of Thy priests." Fr. William Doyle, S.J., M.C.

You are invited to join by your prayers and penances in this novena for the perpetuation of the Gregorian Rite – particularly in the Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin.
