St. Peregrine Novena for Cancer PatientsDo you know anyone affected by cancer or other life-threatening diseases?

We do too. And they need our prayers.

So we’re excited to announce that the next novena we will pray is to the patron saint of cancer patients: St. Peregrine.

This will be a first for us — we have never prayed through St. Peregrine’s intercession before. But after receiving many requests for this novena, we are really looking forward to what we believe will be a very powerful prayer.

Saint Peregrine had a cancerous ulcer on his leg which was miraculously cured when it was thought to be beyond saving. So we will pray for all cancer patients, for all who suffer from life-threatening illnesses, for all their families & friends, as well as for physicians and scientists working to discover a cure.

We all seem to know someone, in one way or another, who has been diagnosed with a terminal disease. So we hope you will join us in praying the St. Peregrine novena for them, and that you will share it with all of your friends & family.

They can sign up to pray with us HERE.

St. Peregrine’s feast day is May 1st. But as with every novena, you can pray it any time of the year — and we will start this one on January 7th. It’s one week away, so be sure to get the word out!

We’re praying for you!

P.S. Today is a Holy Day of Obligation as we celebrate Mary, the Mother of God.

  12. Just wanted you to know when we prayed to St Peregrine we as a family were praying for her to be called home by the end of the novena. Our prayers were answered. Mom had breast cancer 3x. Last year it went into her bones and then to her brain. We asked God for a quick and happy death with minimal suffering. She died peacefully after being with all of her children (7). Within the last hour she was smiling adn listening to stories of her wonderful blessed life.
    Thank you to all those who prayed with us.

  13. I prayed the St. Peregrine Novena for a friend who has been battling cancer for a long time. Last year was particularly difficult for him. Since the end of the Novena, and the beginning of this new year, a new type of chemo treatment has been very successful and has stopped the spread of the cancer. Thanks be to God!

  14. Please pray for me that I get a partner who is willing to marry me by the end of this year or beginning of next year in church. I am asking for the holy sacrament of holy matrimony.

    Thank you!

  16. Last week I prayed the novena to Saint Peregrine for several people I care deeply about who are suffering with cancer, or in recovery. What I didn’t expect was that when I showed up for surgery today for skin cancer that tested positive in Dec. the Dr. wouldn’t be able to find the site. He was baffled, and I can’t stop smiling.

  17. Thank you for this beautiful novena. My daughter joined me in this novena for a dear friend, Aunt Kitty. She was diagnosed w stage 4 lung cancer and it had gone to the brain. She suffered for over a yr and during this novena she was in her final days. I was praying for God to have mercy on her and the 7th day Aunt Kitty died peacefully at home with her daughter at her bedside. Please pray for the repose if my dear Aunt Kitty’s soul. Thank you all so much.
