Novena of Hope

June 4 – July 30, 2018

“Vocation: God Calls Us!”

Thank you for participating in the Miraculous Medal Shrine’s Novena of Hope!

Our Novena of Hope spanned nine consecutive Mondays, beginning on Monday, June 4th, and ending on Monday, July 30th. The theme for this year’s Novena of Hope was: “Vocation, God Calls Us!” God calls each of us to a particular vocation, whether as a single person, a married person, a consecrated religious, a priest or brother. However, the basic vocation for all of us is holiness, the call to become a saint. Each of us needs the help of Jesus and Mary to faithfully live our particular vocation—and they are present, giving us HOPE, along the way!

We are grateful for our Priests’ encouraging Sermons—and the tender love of our Blessed Mother. Thousands of people sought her intercession for their needs and those of your loved ones. To view all the sermons from this powerful Novena, scroll down the page or click here!
