The Knights of Columbus has launched a nine-day novena to prepare for the beatification of the organization's founder, Fr. Michael McGivney, at the end of the month.
The novena starts October 22 and continues through October 30, the eve of Fr. McGivney's beatification.
During the novena, participants will reflect on different aspects of McGivney's life, including his pastoral leadership, charity toward the poor, and support for family life and the domestic church.
Each day of the novena will include prayers for McGivney's intercession and reflections on virtues to imitate. It will also include a prayer for McGivney's canonization, which will require one more approved miracle.
