Orderwide Novena for Brother André

All Knights of Columbus are encouraged to join in a special novena for Brother André, beginning Saturday, October 9, and concluding Sunday, October 17, the day of Brother André's canonization.

We ask God to help us to follow Brother André’s example of prayer and love, so that we too may come into his glory.

Brother André Novena Prayer

God our Father, you gave Brother André of Montreal, your humble servant, a great devotion to St. Joseph and a special commitment to the sick and the needy. May the example of his life and ministry inspire us to ever-greater works of charity, in generous service to our brothers and sisters in need. Give us the strength to surrender ourselves to your will, and to be instruments of your loving mercy. Help us to follow Brother André’s example of prayer and love, so that we too may come into your glory. Through the intercession of Brother André, grant the favor I now present (make your request).
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

An initial supply of prayer cards has been sent to state officers, district deputies, grand knights and council chaplains in the United States and Canada. Additional quantities of holy cards (#9874) can be ordered using a requisition form (#1) and billed to the requesting unit as long as it is signed by an authorized officer. Supplies are available in packs of 100 cards. The first pack of 100 cards ordered by a council, assembly or circle will be free. Subsequent packs cost $3 each to offset standard shipping and handling costs. Individuals — members and non-members — can also order quantities for $3 per pack of 100 cards by calling 1-203-752-4451 and providing credit card information (MasterCard or Visa).

Because of the delay associated with international mail, members outside the United States are encouraged to download the PDF document that will enable convenient local reproduction.

Please spread the word about this novena and invite others in your parish and community to take part in it as well.
