Mark Your Calendars to Pray for Lives Affected by Abortion
2018 Nine Days for Life – January 18th through January 26th
Since the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision 45 years ago, more than 58 million children’s lives have been lost to abortion. In addition, the lives of millions of parents have been shattered as well.
In prayerful recognition of these lost and broken lives, the U.S. Bishops invite Catholics and others nationwide to participate in Nine days of prayer, penance and pilgrimage (January 18th – 26th).

As Pope Saint John Paul II reminds us in The Gospel of Life, we are asked not only to love and honor human life, but also “to work with perseverance and courage” to establish “a new culture of life, the fruit of the culture of truth and of love.” (no 77)
