Pro Life Holy Hour 2020

An Hour of Prayer with Exposition of the Holy Eucharist In Support of the Dignity of Human Life from Conception to Natural Death Marking the 47th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade ( January 22, 1973 – January 22, 2020)

Sponsored by Boston Deacons for Life in collaboration with the Office of Diaconal Life and Ministry & the Pro Life Office of the Archdiocese of Boston

The 12th annual Holy Hour for Life will be held in parishes and collaboratives across the Archdiocese leading up to the anniversary date of Roe v. Wade (January 22), praying in solidarity with thousands of pilgrims going to Washington, D.C. for the March for Life. The March for Life in Washington, D.C. will be held on Friday, January 24th, 2020. We will pray together in solidarity for * increased respect for the dignity of human life from conception to natural death * forgiveness and healing for all those wounded by abortion * peace for those facing death and terminal illness, and * holiness within the Church to transform the culture. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has declared January 22 a day of prayer and penance called the Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children that “shall be observed as a particular day of prayer for the full restoration of the legal guarantee of the right to life and of penance for violations to the dignity of the human person committed through acts of abortion.” All are invited to join as a sign of public witness in support of the Gospel of Life.
