National Night of Prayer for Life
Uniting the Feast of the Immaculate Conception with the Feast of St. Juan Diego
9 PM Dec. 8th (Wednesday) to 1 AM Dec. 9th (Thursday)*
It was on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception in 1531, (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 feasts. All nations of the world are invited to participate, as we ask Our Blessed Mother to protect Life and the Family; to renew the Church, establish Peace, and inspire Courage in the soul of our nation.
During the HOUR OF UNITY, 12 Midnight to 1AM EST., we will be united in churches across the country and the world in prayer to end abortion, and restore God’s blessings.
The National Night of Prayer for Life includes adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, the holy Rosary, prayer to St. Michael, silent prayer and hymns. Contact your local priests, Pro-Life Organizations, Knights of Columbus, and all parish groups and inform your friends and family of this Life-Saving event.
For participating parishes in the Diocese of Rockville Centre please call your local parish to confirm the time of observance for the National Night of Prayer for Life.
