Our Annual 9 Days for Life will be starting January 17th. During this special time of prayer for the Sanctity of Life, we will be posting daily reflections, special prayers, and events and activities (listed below) that you and your loved ones will be able to participate in. There are even more ways to get involved via the USCCB and their app, text messages, emails, and online.
In addition to these things, we would like to remind everyone that our Adoration Chapel is open for any extra time you would like to spend with the Blessed Sacrament. Please join us for this special time of prayer, penance, and pilgrimage for Life!
