Novena Church embraces the principle of: Devotion leads to Mission and the Redemptorists; lay ministers and the faithful of the Novena Church are committed to being involved in the daily lives and struggles of the poor and abandoned. The community of the Novena Church is thus committed to making the Shrine a centre of hospitality, mercy, solidarity and assistance to all. The Novena Church is also committed to being at the forefront of pastoral care to migrants and itinerant peoples. Accordingly, The Novena Church has several ministries in the service of the poor and abandoned, especially the elderly, the sick, migrants and itinerants.
DAWN (MIGRANTS APOSTOLATE)
DAWN which stands for “Developing All Women in the New Era”, is committed to the advancement of Foreign Domestic Workers by drawing forth their talents and gifts and imparting a variety of life skills.
THE SOWERS (PASTORAL MINISTRY)
Since 1970, The Sowers in Novena Church have been reaching out to the elderly, sick and those with special needs through their weekly visits to the homes and in the community as part of Novena Church’s mission of service to the poor, abandoned, elderly, sick, and migrants.
