1. General Intercessions. Go to for intercessions for Respect Life Sunday and all Sundays of the year.

Each week, we provide an email service whereby homily suggestions are sent based on the readings of the Lectionary. These emails are archived at, where you can find specific suggestions for the upcoming Sundays. If you wish to receive this service all year round, simply request it free of charge at

3. Prayers. Select from our wide range of pro-life prayers at We have an ongoing, daily prayer campaign to end abortion, and the parish as a whole may want to sign onto this.
