(Precious Blood's Non-Profit Organization Number --96232)
The Committee on Pro-Life Activities is initiating a Novena for the Legal Protection of Human Life. This nine-week effort will include prayer and fasting for the intention that this change in the membership of the Supreme Court will move our nation closer to the day when every human being is protected in law and welcomed in life. The Novena will also include materials to help educate the public about how Roe v. Wade is not health care, is bad law, and fails women.
The Novena takes place from Friday, August 3rd to Friday, September 28th. Individuals are urged to sign up for the Novena as part of the USCCB Call to Prayer at www.usccb.org/pray. Those who sign up will receive weekly email or text message reminders to pray and fast along with a fact about Roe v. Wade to share with others including their two U.S. Senators (through NCHLA/Human Life Action)
