Bishops Call for Nine Days of Prayer, Penance and Pilgrimage for Life

Nine Days Of Prayer, Penance And Pilgrimage

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:
