Current Novena Note

 

 

 

Dear Friend of St. Jude Thaddeus,

 

"Where there is Prayer, there is Hope"

 

LENTEN NOVENA TO ST. JUDE THADDEUS

 

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent - a time for renewal and Grace. This year’s Lenten season begins on February 14 with the Triduum Masses by the Dominican Fathers and Brothers for our respective intentions. It is a day of fasting and abstinence where we receive blessed ashes on our foreheads reminding us that we are mere mortals, renewing our commitment to the Lord and to lay a new foundation for our spiritual growth.


Lent provides us with a new opportunity to reflect on the Passion, Death and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ while seeking His mercy and forgiveness, asking for God’s Grace to be clean; especially jettisoning all forms of sins in our lives through humble repentance and penance; partaking in fasting, prayer and true acts of Charity to our neighbors and to the Poor.


Our world today has been saddled with growing anger, intolerance and conflict, ethnic and religious divisions coupled with immodesty in lifestyle.  There is need for self re-evaluation and renewed commitment to the Lord; and to always live in charity, the bond of perfection. The Bible reminds us in Luke Chapter 8:15: “Blessed are those who, with a noble and generous heart, take the word of God to themselves and yield a harvest through their perseverance.” Our Lenten Novena will commence on Wednesday March 14th and to end on Thursday March 22, 2018.

 

Rev. Fr. Christopher Nnamani, O.P. is the Novena Preacher. He joined the Dominican Order of Preachers in the Year 2000 and was ordained in 2010.

 

After his ordination, he was sent to Our Lady of Fatima Gusau, Zamfara State where he worked from 2010 - 2011. Then in 2011, Fr. Nnamani was assigned to St. Dominic Catholic Church, Yaba where he worked as an Associate Pastor till September 2013.

 

Upon the opening of the first Dominican House in the Archdiocese of Benin, Fr. Nnamani was sent to serve as the Chaplain of College of Education and Director of Archdiocesan Marian Shrine; all at Eguedaiken - Ekiadolor, Benin City.

 

At present, Fr. Nnamani is the Director of Students at St. Thomas Aquinas Priory, Dominican Community (the formation House), Ibandan, Oyo State, Nigeria.
