Mother's Day Novena
April 29 - May 7
Mother's Day falls on May 10
Express your love for a special mother, grandmother, godmother, mother-in-law, an expectant mother, or any woman who has played a motherly role in your life.
Our Mother’s Day Novena cards let her know that she will be remembered in our Mother's Day Novena of Holy Masses and a Mass on Mother's Day at the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy.
You can remember any dear mother, living or deceased. For an additional gift, you can request a Votive Candle lit for your special intentions and have a pink carnation placed near the altar.
May 6 - 14
Follow the example of the original "Novena" ("9 days") when the Apostles prayed in the 9 days leading up to a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost.
Before Jesus ascended to heaven, He promised He wouldn't leave them alone (John 14:16). Once the Apostles received the gifts of the Holy Spirit, their grief was turned into joy (John 16:20) and they boldly proclaimed the mighty acts of God to people of every language (Acts 2:4).
Submit a special intention for this Novena praying for a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
Bl. Stanislaus Papczynski Novena

As a Marian Helper, you may have read about Blessed Stanislaus in our Marian Helper magazine or on our sites. The magazine also has published many letters of thanksgiving for graces received through Blessed Stanislaus's intercession. We know he is sill actively involved in bringing God's mercy to us.
Fr. Papczynski died a little more than 300 years ago, but his work continues around the world thanks to the Marians and Marian Helpers like you. Please join us in remembering this outstanding priest who let the Lord work through him.
Send your special intentions to be remembered in this Novena to Blessed Stanislaus.
Alliance of the Two Hearts Novena
May 25 - June 2
Entrust yourself, your family, or other special intentions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
In the Alliance of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary Novena, the Marians will be offering 9 days of Holy Mass in preparation for the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
The expression "Alliance of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary" was coined by Pope John Paul II in his Angelus address of September 15, 1985. He exhorted the faithful to unite with the "admirable alliance" of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.
In the Bible, the "heart" is not only a vital organ — it is a reference to the disposition of the whole person. The word "heart" is used in the Gospel in reference to only two individual persons: Jesus (Mt 11:29) and Mary (Lk 2:19, 51). Their two Hearts made the perfect response to the Father for the sake of our salvation. We see the pierced Hearts as an expression of that selfless love.
We turn again with trust to Jesus and Mary, to look upon us with merciful love.
Please send us your special intentions to be remembered in this novena.
