The Annual National Night of Prayer for Life begins 9:00PM Dec. 8th to 1:00AM Dec. 9th. During the Hour of Unity, 12 AM – 1 AM EST, we will be united with churches across the country in prayer.
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.

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.
More than 20 Parishes in the Archdiocese of New York hosted a National Night of Prayer for Life
