Join us for our 9-day Solemn Novena 2023 from November 13–21. This year we celebrate “Mary’s Love Theme,” as we unite in prayer to our Blessed Mother and prepare for our celebration of the Solemnity of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.

THE PRAYER HEARD AROUND THE WORLD

The Perpetual Novena has been called the prayer heard around the world. In 1930, Fr. Joseph A. Skelly, CM, a Vincentian of the Eastern Province, introduced the Perpetual Novena to publicly honor Mary and increase devotion to her Miraculous Medal. The success of the Novena services spread to more than 3,300 churches and chapels worldwide and was translated into many languages—including Braille.

Just as impressive, the Perpetual Novena has remained unbroken for almost a century. As Fr. Skelly stated in July 1931, “There is no force [as] mighty as that of thousands of united hearts, joined in faith and love, asking [for] Mary’s intercession.”

UNITE IN PRAYER TO MARY

At The Basilica Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, we pray the Perpetual Novena beseeching our Blessed Mother for her extraordinary graces, encompassing both profound spiritual healing and physical restoration.

PLENARY INDULGENCES
