novena of masses
“I came that you may have life and have it abundantly” John 10:10
I write this invitation to you to participate in the annual Christmas Oblate Novena of Masses. This morning I walked the corridors of Mazenod College, Victoria, meeting the young men finishing off their last class days before their final exams of secondary school. These encounters fill me with a spirit of thankfulness but also a prayer for the well-being of family and friends, especially of these young students.
As you prepare for this year’s celebration of the Birth of Christ, I am sure that the above words of Jesus move you to pray for yourself and those dear to you. It is a time for sending cards to family and friends that have slipped through our ‘caring net’ because of our busy lives.
You are invited to place your special intentions below. All intentions will be placed in the Camberwell chapel where Masses will be offered from 16th December to Christmas Day. This novena is an expression of our Oblate gratitude for your prayers and support.
May the peace and love of this Christmas be your gift as you offer this gift to others.
Fr. John Sherman OMI
