Description: In the Church’s tradition of making a Novena to the Holy Spirit (especially during the 9 days before Pentecost), this 2-page (one paper double-sided) hand-out uses the 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit and the Fruits of the Spirit as the basis of a unique and personal growth-producing novena. Includes an Act of Consecration to the Holy Spirit and prayers for the gifts of Holy Fear, Piety, Fortitude, Knowledge, Understanding, Counsel, Wisdom, and the Fruits of the Holy Spirit.
Ideas for use: Prayer beginning 9 days before Pentecost, RCIA Mystagogy Class, prayer meetings, stewardship, staff and ministry leader workshops, etc. It’s most ideal for parish staff and teams to join in praying this every day for 9 days; better yet, make it a parish event and keep it going until it transforms your parish!
