About the St. Therese Novena

To the friends and benefactors of the Missionary Diocese of Fairbanks.

In September we begin our annual Novena to the Patroness of the missions of Alaska, St. Therese, "The Little Flower." The Novena will begin on September 23 and will end on the Feast of St. Therese, October 1. On each of these days a Mass will be offered for our friends and for their needs and petitions.

You are invited to submit petitions to be remembered during the novena. No offering is necessary. Any received will be used to support our ministries here in Northern Alaska.

All petitions will be read and remembered in the Masses offered during these nine days.



"O Lord, who said, unless you become as little children you shall not enter the Kingdom of Heaven, GRANT US, WE BESEECH YOU, to so follow in the way of Blessed Therese in humility and simplicity that through her intercession these petitions and those of all our members may be granted as part of the shower of roses she promised to send upon this earth."
