October 31: A day that will make K of C history

Father McGivney

On Oct. 31, Father McGivney is to be named “Blessed” by Pope Francis. That day, the Church will declare what many have long believed — that the holy soul of Father McGivney can intercede for us before the throne of God.

In the past, miracles have occurred for those who pray at the time of a beatification. So, as we count down the days to this amazing event, we invite you to join brother Knights and Catholics across the world in praying a special novena from Thursday, Oct. 22, to Friday, Oct. 30.

The brand new novena features commentary on the life of Father McGivney, as well as unique petitions and daily intentions close to our founder’s heart. We hope that through these prayers and petitions many will be brought closer to God and that we ourselves may renew our love of God and neighbor.

A downloadable version of the novena can be found here.
