Join us in a Novena Prayer with Saint Mother Theodore Guerin

During her life, Saint Mother Theodore showed attentiveness and affection for her sisters, neighbors and friends in the United States and in France. Relying on that attentiveness and affection, we ask her to intercede and pray for us today. Join us for a special novena prayer these nine days leading up to the celebration of her feast day, October 3.

We invite you pray with the Sisters of Providence and Saint Mother Theodore Guerin in this novena prayer. Bring your own needs to God with prayer support from Saint Mother Theodore.

Let’s begin today with Day 1 of the novena, below. Then, we invite you continue on in prayer with us for the next nine days. You can find each additional day of the novena here. The novena is composed by Mary Ellen Gremelspacher, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College class of 1962.

Novena to Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, Day 1

Anne Therese Guerin, Saint Mother Theodore, I call upon you to help me through my present situation. You know how dependent I am on God’s Providence to fill my need.

Out of love and respect for your holiness, as well as my admiration for your strength of character, I ask for your assistance now. You were able to withstand so many difficult situations, yet you relied on God’s endless Providence to meet the needs of you and your community.

Please implore Providence, on my behalf, to remember my needs.

(Mention your need or concern.)

Thank you, Saint Mother Theodore, for coming to my side at this time of need. Allow me to lean on you with my concerns.

    Thank you for this beautiful Novena. It came at the perfect time. I prayed with it every day and felt Saint Mother Theodore holding my hand through this difficult time for me. This Novena was very powerful. I will continue to pray with her daily.
    Love All, Serve All,
