US Catholics invited to pray novena for Haiti

Catholic World News - January 07, 2011

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is asking Catholics in the United States to pray a novena to Our Lady of Guadalupe for Haiti. The novena begins on January 12-- the anniversary of the 2010 Haiti earthquake-- and concludes on January 20, preceding a national collection for the Church in Latin American and Caribbean nations, including Haiti.

“Haiti and its people still very much need our prayers and solidarity,” said Archbishop Thomas Wenski of Miami, chairman of the US bishops’ special advisory group for Haiti. “As we approach the anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti, we join together with parishes, Catholic schools, youth groups, colleges and universities from across the country to remember the tragic events of that fateful afternoon and to respond in a faith-filled way.”
