A 54-Day Novena = Consists of praying a Rosary (five decades / one set of mysteries) each day for twenty-seven days in petition; followed by praying the rosary for twenty-seven days in thanksgiving, thanking God for how He will answer our petitions. We will all pray the same Prayer of Petition / Prayer of Thanksgiving to begin the rosary each day. Typically, a novena is prayed for 9 days. This is an extended novena, equivalent to six ordinary novenas (6 x 9 = 54). It is unique in its admonition to pray in petition for the first half (27 days), and pray in thanksgiving for whatever God gives us in the second half (27 days).
Parish/Group Liaisons = FRP will provide information to identified Liaisons who will then assist with communications. A supporting parish or group simply provides the name of a person (staff, parishioner or volunteer group member), to serve as a liaison. FRP will identify Liaisons who are able to assist with communications at their parish, make pledge/sign-up cards available for those unable to use the internet, advise and assist with distribution of Rosary kits at their particular parish, etc. (All information, cards, kits, etc will be provided by FRP).
Rosary Kits = Each kit will include: a Rosary & how-to pray a rosary leaflet, an attractive Intention Prayer card that can be placed on a prayer table, dinner table, night stand, etc. (designed specifically for this Novena), instructions & daily schedule for the Novena, basic info about FRP, a Spiritual Communion Prayer Card and more.
We want to thank Our Lady’s Rosary Makers, 4611 Poplar Level Road, for providing all the rosaries and How to Pray the Rosary leaflets that will be included in each kit!
