From the Diocese of Raleigh:Read the details over at Dr. Nadal's blog.
The Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of Raleigh, has requested in a letter that all the Priests, Religious and lay faithful in the Diocese of Raleigh participate in a novena to the Immaculate Conception, patroness of the Diocese, on behalf of Philip Johnson, one of our Diocesan seminarians. The novena will begin on Monday, November 29, and culminate on Wednesday, December 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.
As you know, we have been keeping Philip in our daily prayers (see side bar for prayer). I would now ask that you join in this novena for Philip.
