Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray, from Ascension to Pentecost, for more people to come to know Jesus.

13 – 23 May 2021

This time of prayer for evangelisation has become known as Thy Kingdom Come and taps into the first novena we have in the Catholic Church, the Pentecost Novena, traditionally prayed from the Ascension to Pentecost for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

Thy Kingdom Come offers us to the opportunity to pray alongside our brothers and sisters from other Christian denominations for people to come closer to Christ. We can do this using the prayers of our own tradition, by going to Mass, or exploring other Catholic forms of prayer. We hope to inspire and enable practicing Catholics to pray for evangelisation – specifically praying for five members of their family or friends to come closer to Christ – as they pray ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ from the Ascension to Pentecost.
