Novena For Protection Against Ebola Virus

The Crosier Fathers and Brothers and St. Theresa Catholic Church are offering a novena of intercession for protection from the Ebola virus. Services will begin October 28th and continue for nine consecutive Tuesdays at 6:30PM at St. Theresa’s. The services will be 30 to 40 minutes in length, and each service will have a different theme of deliverance. All are invited and welcome to attend.

The novena is built on a prayer service featuring the solemn chanting of the “Haec Est Praeclarum Vas,” which was sung by the Crosiers in the Middle Ages to ward off the threat of the bubonic plague. That chant continued daily for centuries thereafter in Crosier communities.

Given the widespread concern and fear of this deadly virus, we invite people to come together and pray for protection. We are drawing on an age-old Crosier tradition of reflection and intercession to Our Lady of Protection.
