We will pray the Rosary for 54 consecutive days, without missing a day.
We pray in petition the first 27 days then in thanksgiving the last 27 days.
We have chosen a start date of July 14th because it is the feast day of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, “The Lily of the Mohawks.” Kateri was a Native American woman born in New York. She seems the ideal person to call to mind as we launch this novena, we end on September 5 the feast of St. Teresa of Calcutta.
July 14 to August 9 – we offer our petitions to God.
August 10 to September 5 – we offer prayers of thanksgiving for God’s response.
