St. Ignatius, Baltimore, will celebrate its 150th Novena of Grace beginning March 4, with the traditional nine days of prayer to the Jesuit missionary St. Francis Xavier.
Daily novena services will be held at the 7:25 a.m. and 12:10 p.m. Masses at the historic Calvert Street church.
Missionary Francis Xavier – who was born 501 years ago – labored in India and Japan during the 16th Century.
In addition to the Novena of Grace, St. Ignatius has scheduled a series of 6 p.m. devotions each Friday during Lent in the Chapel of Grace, which will include the Rosary, Benediction, Liturgy of the Hours and Stations of the Cross.
Light refreshments and faith sharing will follow each service in the Ignatian Hall.
