Annual Solemn Novena 2020

Annual Solemn Novena 2020: We are happy to announce that Novena 2020 will go ahead from Sept 8th to 16th inclusive. However, due to Covid 19, the format will be significantly different from previous years.

  • The Novena will be primarily available online and the numbers allowed to attend will be dependent on government guidelines and our ability to ensure the safety of all.  Broadcast links will be publicised in the coming weeks.
  • The Novena will be broadcast online at 10.30am and 7.30pm daily and on Tipperary Mid West Radio at 7.30pm daily.
  • Petitions for the Annual Novena and our weekly Friday Novena can now be submitted online (anonymously) by clicking the link below. These petitions will be prayed for at the Novena.
  • The Session for the Sick will be broadcast at 2pm on Saturday 12th September. Unfortunately, we will not be able to facilitate a large scale Anointing of the Sick.
  • We will be unable to accommodate the Blessing of Infants or the Penitential Service out of concern for the protection of clergy and congregation.
  • If you wish to receive a copy of the Novena prayers to join in at home, please email hbparishoffice@gmail.com or call 0504-43124 and we will be happy to forward them to you.

We thank you for your understanding and support during these difficult times and we pray that Our Lady will watch over us all.
