Virtual Novena to St. Isidore

For over 98 years, we have been serving rural communities and promoting Catholic life in rural America. Every year hundreds of people across the country join together for a very special Novena to St. Isidore, patron of farmers and Catholic Rural Life. Each day a Bishop leads us through the novena, lifting up all the intentions of rural communities throughout our country.

Videos are on our Facebook and posted here.
