MARKING THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF ROE V. WADE
On January 22nd and January 25th our nation will remember the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.
Since that tragic decision, more than 55 million children’s lives have been lost to abortion, and the lives of millions of their parents have been shattered.
As part of the bishops’ recent call to prayer, “Nine Days of Prayer, Penance and Pilgrimage” will take place January 19-27, 2013.
This time period, focusing on the theme of pilgrimage, includes:
- Blessings of pro-life pilgrims (en español)
- Novena – Sign up for daily emails, or text “9days” to 99000 to receive it through daily text messages! Printable version
- Youth and young adult activities (“Pro-Life Profiles” and a middle and high school age video contest)
- Closing Eucharistic Holy Hour
We will be posting the daily novena prayers here, each day, beginning January 19th.
