9 Days for Life
“9 Days for Life,” a novena for the intention that all human life be respected, will begin on January 19 and continue through January 27, 2023.
You are invited to join thousands of Catholics across the country in nine days of prayer for life and human dignity.
The prayer campaign, sponsored by the Committee on Pro Life Activities of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, includes the annual Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children on January 22.
In 2022, the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision overturned the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide. However, pre-born children are still losing their lives.
Each of the nine days highlights a related topic and includes an intercession, prayers, a reflection, an act of reparation, and one step further you might take. You will find easy to follow guides below.
