Washington, DC — A national webcast on Wednesday night, February 15, will launch a national prayer campaign in response to the unjust mandate of President Obama’s HHS, which violates the conscience and religious freedom of countless Americans.
The webcast and prayer effort have been organized by Priests for Life, the world’s largest Catholic pro-life ministry.
From 9 to 10 pm ET on Wednesday, people can join by phone or online to listen to experts like Congressman Chris Smith and Douglas Johnson, Federal Legislative Director for the National Right to Life Committee, explain exactly what the President has done and exactly what we can do to stop him.
Registration for the webcast is at www.priestsforlife.org/webcast.
Then, at the conclusion of the call, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, will launch the prayer effort.
“We have composed a special novena prayer to be said from February 16 through the 24th, and it is available at www.PrayerCampaign.org,” Father Frank explained. “There will also be an additional prayer composed for each day, and posted on that prayer site. We urge individuals, families, schools, and Churches to join in this prayer effort and to let us know they are joining in by means of the form they will find at www.PrayerCampaign.org.
“This is a moment of profound significance, when we are defending the very principles for which martyrs died and our Founding Fathers established the nation. This is a moment of direct attack on our freedom of conscience and religion. Prayer is essential for us to know what to do, and to have the strength to do it,” Father Frank concluded.
Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit Priests for Life.
