National Night of Prayer for Life – tonight!

When I started to write this post, I didn’t readily find a Web site specifically about this event, but did find several links to blogs and other sites that tell what their parishes are doing about it. These links also are a view into what various pro-life groups around the country are doing in their ministries. (You’ll see that one of them does provide a link to a main Web site, but I decided that this tour of pro-life communities is still worth sharing!)

Is a calendar type of page, so at some point in the future the announcement about this event probably will no longer be shown, but you might still appreciate seeing how the diocese sets up its pro-life site.

19th Annual National Night of Prayer for Life. It was on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (then celebrated on December 9th) that Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Americas and the unborn, first appeared to St. Juan Diego. The National Night of Prayer for Life bridges these two feasts to honor Our Blessed Mother and to pray for the sanctity of all human life. During the Hour of Unity, 12:00 AM – 1:00 AM EST., we will be united in churches across the country in prayer to end abortion and in reparation for sins against the Gospel of Life. Prayerfully join us in Unity of Prayer across the country, highlighting Eucharistic Adoration and the Rosary. Visit: NationalNightofPrayerforLife.org for full details.

National Night of Prayer for Life

Uniting the Feast of the Immaculate Conception
with the Feast of St. Juan Diego

9PM Dec. 8th (Monday) to 1AM Dec. 9th (Tuesday)

It was on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (then celebrated on December 9) that Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Americas, and the unborn, first appeared to St. Juan Diego. The National Night of Prayer for Life bridges these two feasts to honor Our Blessed Mother and to pray for the sanctity of all human life.

We ask each parish to join in praying on this holy occasion.

During the HOUR OF UNITY, 12PM-1AM EST, we will be united in churches across the county in prayer to end abortion in reparation for sins against the Gospel of Life.

The National Night of Prayer for Life is a pro-life prayer service consisting of exposition and adoration to the Blessed Sacrament, 20 decades of the Rosary, prayer to St. Michael, meditation and hymns.
