Novena (NS20) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the North South Line.

History

Date Event
12 December 1987 Station officially opens

Etymology

The station was named after the popular weekly Novena devotion sessions held at the nearby Catholic Church of Saint Alphonsus or more popularly known as Novena Church. The term "Novena" is derived from the Latin word "Novem" which means nine, and which refers to prayers said for nine consecutive days.[1]

Cultural Impact

The station is rumoured to be haunted, possibly because the area used to be the site of a Jewish cemetery.[2]
