Novena to St Francis and Clare August 9th 

The St. Anthony of Padua Fraternity in Gulfport worked with St. Mary Our Lady of Grace, a TOR parish in St. Petersburg, to create a nine-week Novena to St. Francis of Assisi. The Novena includes music, prayers, and intercessions. Each week we will learn about one aspect from the life of St. Francis and how people in our parish and community are following in his footsteps.  Judy Born, OFS talks about St. Clare, Sylvia Gonzales, OFS talks about Francis’ love for Mary, and Tom Heid, OFS talks about the stigmata.   The Novena begins August 9th, new episodes will be released every Monday;

The Novena will be posted on the parish website,
