National Night of Prayer for Life
Uniting the Feast of the Immaculate Conception with the Feast of
St. Juan Diego
Each year, the National Night of Prayer for Life takes place from 9 pm
Dec. 8th to 1 am Dec. 9th.
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.
We ask each parish to join in praying on this holy occasion.
The National Night of Prayer for Life is a pro-life prayer service
consisting of exposition and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, 20 decades
of the Rosary, prayer to St. Michael, silent prayer and hymns.
For more information and to download prayers, instructions and flyers go
resources from Priests for Life.
Contact your local priests, religious, Right to Life Organizations,
Knights of Columbus, and other parish/fraternal organizations and inform
your friends and family across the nation.
