Christmas Novena

God became a baby, a tiny, helpless child, born of a woman, so that all our faults, all our weaknesses, all the wounds we’ve suffered, and all the wounds we’ve inflicted, could be forgotten, wiped away by his transforming grace. 

As one way of sharing this grace, the Dominican Friars Foundation would like to offer you the opportunity to enroll a loved one, living or deceased, in our Special Christmas Novena of Masses—from December 17 to December 25—which will be celebrated by our Dominican brothers at St. Dominic’s Church in Washington, D.C.

It is my prayer that God blesses you richly this Christmas, leading you to an ever-deepening appreciation of the newness he brings to our world and our lives. 

Please pray for our work and for us, as well. Your prayers and your offering will help me and my fellow Dominican Friars to announce God’s promises of salvation and new life to a hurting world. 

Thank you, again, for your faithful support. I pray this Christmas season is truly one of joy and light for you and all those you love.


In Christ and St. Dominic,

Fr. John Paul Kern, O.P.
Executive Director
Dominican Friars Foundation

Please note that a minimum donation of $5 is required to enroll a name in the novena. If you cannot afford a donation at this time, we ask that you use the prayer request form instead.
