The practice of saying a novena is derived from Scripture.  Before ascending into Heaven, Jesus told his disciples to pray together in the upper room and devote themselves to constant prayer.  

In obedience to this command, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the apostles, and other followers of Jesus prayed together for nine consecutive days, concluding in the descent of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost.  

Although we have a special nine day novena from July 18 to the 26 in honor of our patron saint, St. Anna, we also pray a perpetual novena to her every Thursday immediately following the 7:30am Mass.  

This novena is said in particular for graces to be poured out upon our parish and school, but people also join their own special intentions to the grandmother of our Lord at this particular time.
