Our First Novena at St. Ann’s Basilica

Hi everyone! Hope you all are doing well! A lot has happened this past month but one thing that’s very special and dear to us is being able to do the Novena this year! It’s our first one together and we are truly blessed to be able to experience it together and at one of our favorite church, St. Ann’s Basilica!

For those who are not familiar with the Novena, it’s practiced in the Roman Catholic Churches which goes on for 9 days and it’s a form of worship consisting of special prayers. It starts off with regular mass and then followed by the novena and guest speakers from all over the world!

Despite our busy work schedule, we managed to go for all the days! There were days where I worked a 12 hour shift after attending the mass and novena which lasted for at least 3 hours but the sacrifice every single day was well worth it!

Our faith has gotten so much stronger since the first day we met and we give all credit to the Lord for never leaving our side and always giving us strength to overcome anything and the best part? He has blessed us with one another to go through the trials and tribulations together.

I am thankful for my partner in Christ. There’s not a day where he does not pray for me, our faith, and our relationship. Attending this novena together renewed us spiritually, mentally, and it healed us.

Here’s a few photos from the novena! St. Ann’s Basilica is a BEAUTIFUL church and the service was outside when the weather was nice and they had food sale every single day so we ate there literally all 10 days lol!
