USCCB Nine Days for Life Novena Jan 14-22, 2019

We have a wonderful opportunity to pray for the respect of human life through a nine day Novena which begins Monday January 14th, and ends Tuesday January 22nd, 2019.  As you know, this coincides with the National March For Life rally in Washington DC, which is taking place on January 18th. The first, is to go to the website WWW.9DAYSFORLIFE.COM.  This is a section of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops website, where you can choose to participate in the Novena by signing up for its daily emails, or texts, from Jan 14th to 22nd, and where you can also download a free mobile app if you choose.  That's it for the first option!  It's very simple, as they'll send everything to you each day.

Once you've signed up, beginning on January 14th, you will be sent a daily email or text, which will contain:
-a daily intercession, such as, "May a culture of life grow ever stronger in our communities"
-suggested prayers (ex. Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be)
-a daily reflection on the sacredness of life
-a suggested act of reparation for the day (ex. skip a cup of coffee today)
-and finally, some further ideas, thoughts, and resources available for our consideration....

Please plan to participate in this special opportunity.
