What is a novena?

A novena is a Catholic practice that consists of nine days of prayer dedicated to one particular intention.

The intention of this novena is for the abolition of capital punishment in the U.S.

Novenas can be prayed all throughout the year and for many different purposes. Some novenas are prayed for penance or in anticipation or preparation of an event or feast day. This novena will be prayed from October 1-9, in anticipation of World Day Against the Death Penalty on October 10.
