Catholic accountability and reform. Gender equality. Inclusion. Interfaith dialogue. The co-responsibility of laypeople in the Church. LGBT+ rights. Peace. Social justice. Solidarity. Synodality.

These are some of the values we have at Novena. If you recognise yourself in them, why not consider making a financial contribution to our website?

  • Advance an entirely independent Catholic media project, beholden to no one
  • Grow the reach of progressive Catholic voices
  • Amplify news from under-represented groups in the Church out into the public square
  • Participate in liberatory struggles in the Church and wider society
  • Work to bring Gospel-inspired change to a world desperate for direction

We know times are tough, and even more so now with the COVID-19 pandemic. But we believe in what we’re doing, and we know you do too.

Your gift need not be much. In the box below, we’ve suggested some amounts, but we’d also like to give you the option of contributing as you see fit (€3 or equivalent minimum).

Thank you! Your help makes all the difference in terms of us continuing to be able to publish the news that we love to produce and that you have come to rely on.
