“The liturgical calendar creates a rhythm for our lives – seasons of feasting and fasting, and entering into prayer with a novena leading up to a feast day within those seasons can help us to encounter these feast days in a more active way.” – John-Paul and Annie Deddens
John-Paul and Annie Deddens
John-Paul and Annie Deddens have helped people from all around the world discover the beauty of praying novenas through their online prayer ministry and website, Pray More Novenas. They met after Annie prayed a Novena to St. Anne, and novenas have been a part of their life together ever since. For more than 10 years, the two have been blessed to play a small part in the resurgence of Catholics praying novenas via Pray More Novenas. In addition to novena prayers, their ministry also includes online prayer retreats that help the faithful to pray more during the holy seasons of Advent and Lent. They co-authored the new book from Ascension,Pocket Guide to Novenas .
