Novena for the Anniversary of Father Mark’s Priestly Ordination
Thursday, June 8 – Friday, June 16, 2017
Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church has been blessed to have Father Mark serve our parish community most of his 10 years as a priest. He will soon celebrate the anniversary of his Ordination to the Priesthood and we therefore invite you to join us in praying this Novena for him.
Father Mark makes many sacrifices and he prays for us so much! So, let us do the same for him by praying this Novena each day beginning Thursday, June 8 until his celebration of the anniversary of his ordination of Friday, June 16.
Daily Novena Prayers
Dear Lord Jesus, You have given us a holy priest in Father Mark. We are grateful for the many blessings of this good man who brings us Your holy sacraments of salvation.
Father Mark’s hands and prayers bring us Your saving grace in the waters of baptism, Your infinite mercy in forgiving our sins and Your sustaining and saving grace in the most Holy Eucharist.
We pray that he will have a long life with which to bless Your Church and a happy death as he is ushered into Your eternal bliss. Just as Father Mark is there to anoint the dying, grant that he will receive the same grace at his death.
We beg You, Jesus, that this holy priest will be protected from all spiritual and temporal attacks and that his fidelity to the Church and his faith in You will endure, unwavering, until the end.
Father in heaven, bless and multiply Father Mark’s ministry so that Your Church will multiply for Your glory and for our salvation. Please shower this priest with your blessings every day.
We praise and thank You, most Holy God, for the gift of Father Mark! We thank You for his years of service and ask You to bless us with many more years with our beloved priest.
