The Our Lady of Lourdes Novena has been a traditional part of the spirituality of our trips for many
years now. So, we will continue it again this year. But we have decided to expand our pre-trip
devotions to include prayers for/to the Poor Souls in Purgatory. For some time now, this ministry
has had a great devotion to the Poor Souls, and they have become very prevalent in our daily
devotions. We invite everyone, whether you are traveling with us or not, to make use of the
devotion listed below. Please pray the St. Gertrude Prayer daily. And, if possible, pray the
Chaplet for the Poor Souls daily. If not possible, please consider praying it at least once per
week. And please also remember how efficacious it is to have Masses celebrated frequently
for the Poor Souls in Purgatory. They depend on our prayers, and can also be powerful
intercessors on our behalf.
