9 Days for Life

Diocese of Sacramento

“9 Days for Life,” a novena for the intention that all human life be respected, begins January 21 and continues through January 29. 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, leads up to the annual Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children. The novena and day of prayer are a time of recollection and reparation in observation of the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States.

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.  For an easy to follow, day-by-day guide, click here.  For a guide in Spanish, click here.
