Pray during #9DaysforLife; join Bishop Walkowiak for the Mass for Life Jan. 22

On Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2019, our nation will mark the 46th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision which legalized abortion in our country. Bishop Walkowiak encourages all people of the diocese to observe that day as a Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children. 

Join our bishop for Mass at the Cathedral of Saint Andrew, Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. to reaffirm our commitment to the Gospel of life and to the protection of all human life from conception to natural death. All are welcome.  


Three ways to participate in Nine Days for Life!

Your prayers matter; Your sacrifices make a difference
Since the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision 46 years ago, more than 55 million children's lives have been lost to abortion, and the lives of millions of their parents have been shattered. In prayerful recognition of these lost and broken lives, the U.S. Bishops invite Catholics and others nationwide to participate in nine days of prayer, penance and pilgrimage Jan. 14-22.
