9 Days for Life

9 Days for Life is an annual period of prayer and action focused on cherishing the gift of every person’s life.  This year, it will take place January 21-29.  Surrounding the Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children on January 22, the overarching intention of the centerpiece novena is the end to abortion.  However, the novena also highlights many other facets of respecting each other’s God-given dignity, especially by respecting human life at every stage and in every circumstance.
