Hi there Belle, Yes, so will I miss it, I have really enjoyed every one of the Novenas, it has brought great joy to me and mine as I shared with my son in Holland and have told no end of people to tune-in abroad, Canada and Australia, didn't realise one of my nieces had emigrated to Australia a few years ago after the death of her mother; found her through facebook and gave her the clonard live to watch, so it goes around the world.  I really enjoyed today's novena especially.

Love and best wishes Geraldine in Coventry x

Well I hope you enjoyed the nice person who gave you all a wave - it wasn't me. ;)

Darcy if I get the chance I will certainly tell him how much you appreciate his singing - all the way down in OZ. :D

THERE ARE JUST TWO DAYS LEFT OF THE NOVENA - THURSDAY BEING THE LAST ONE.  I must say I have absolutely enjoyed it over the past number of days and I know that a lot of our Forum Members have also.

Again a lovely service and I will miss it greatly when it is over, it has been so rewarding and inspiring
 
God Bless x

Well Darcy - I was at the 7am  Mass this morning and I did give a little wave towards the webcam on our way out of the church after the Mass. And I had my Novena book rolled up in my hand. ;)  So I'm glad that you saw me Darcy giving you all a wee wave.  :D  Yes I will miss it too when it finishes.

That was a wonderful 9 Day Novena. Went to the slightly later session today at 9.30am  - but just as crowded as all the others. I hope that there will be a great many prayers and petitions answered through this Novena. Well done to all the Forum members who followed it throughout the past 9 days. Hopefully we will be doing the same next year, if God spares us all. ;)

thanks be to almight God for the wonderful gift He gave us all.
 
Thanks to Him for the lovely priests and deacons and preachers.
 
for the beautiful singing.
 
for the wee altar boys and girls.
 
for the flowers on the altar.

It was a wonderful and beautiful Novena.

Did you see the 'concert' at the end of the last session last night?

Yes Belle, it is so uplifting and so many  find

renewed strength to carry on, especially when lift is particularly tough.

All the best to you.

Belle - firstly, the enthusiastic  young Deacon you asked me about the other day is called Derek Ryan. Well that's the name he gave me this morning. He is a lovely pleasant fella to talk to. We have been attending the 7am sessions during the novena as we did this morn also. So I just glanced over towards the Webcam but I was thinking about you. ;)  Will definitely give a wave to you tomorrow. I will wave my Novena book in the air so you know its me. :D
  lil belle here he is.
