A Brief History 

It was on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (then celebrated on Dec 9) that Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the unborn and of the Americas, first appeared to St. Juan Diego. The National Night of Prayer for Life bridges these two feasts to honor Our Blessed Mother and to pray for the Lord’s mercy and restore life, liberty, faith and peace.   

We ask each parish to join in praying on this holy occasion. 

We understand that not every parish is equipped to host prayer during those late hours, thus you may modify your prayer schedule to be united in prayer at a time that works best for your parish that evening. 

We want to help you advertise your National Night of Prayer for Life event. Contact: sr.mary.margaret.hope@archny.org
