The Saints of Color Novena

by | Feb 17, 2022 | Prayers, Race, Saints of Color Novena, Spirituality, Videos

On February 20th, we will begin a virtual Saints of Color Novena. The Catholic Church is rich with saints and witnesses that inspire us towards holiness, righteousness, and greater charity. These virtuous lives remind us of God’s love and compassion for humanity. 

A team of laypeople, priests, and religious from the Saint Louis area have been working hard to create this Novena. Our hope is that you’ll become inspired through prayer as we come to know these saints and holy people of color more personally.

The novena will introduce us to nine holy figures through nine different videos. As we pray alongside each holy figure, we will ask for the grace to have a deeper conversion of heart. This novena will expand our notions of holiness, allow us to build personal relationships with these saints, and cultivate a spirit of unity and dialogue among the faithful. 

Videos for the Saints of Color Novena will be posted daily starting on February 20th. You can find them here on our website and on all of our social media channels.

We hope that you will join us. God Bless!
