Son of Alphaeus

Feast Day: May 3rd

Novena: Day 9

Pray for us to nurture relationships that help us to grow in the fruits of the Holy Spirit: charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self-control and chastity.

Pray:Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be. Amen.
