Sacred Heart Novena 2020

Sacred Heart Novena


The Messenger Publications’ annual Sacred Heart Novena is held for the nine days leading up to the Feast of the Sacred Heart, which is always celebrated nineteen days after Pentecost. This year the Novena runs from Thursday 11th – Friday 19th June and was written by David Stewart SJ.

Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is considered a symbol of “God’s boundless and passionate love for humanity”. Many have found comfort and solace praying the Novena, and this year we have particular reason as a community, a nation and a global people to find strength, patience and reassurance in God’s love for us.

This year, as a way of encouraging and supporting our readers and promoters, we have made the 2020 Novena available to download FREE OF CHARGE.

NOTE: The Novena is also available as a pull-out supplement in the June Messenger.
