Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children



January 22 is a day of prayer and penance, called the:

"Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children”

Please pray for all the unborn children.

Prayer for Life

Eternal God, You have revealed Yourself as the Father of all Life. We praise You for the Fatherly care which You extend to all creation, and especially to us, made in Your image and likeness.

Father, extend Your hand of protection to those threatened by abortion, and save them from its destructive power. Give Your strength to all fathers, that they may never give in to the fears that may tempt them to facilitate abortions.

Bless our families and bless our land, that we may have the joy of welcoming and nurturing the life of which You are the source and the Eternal Father.

Please come and support Christopher.





Candlemass is also known as the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus Christ in the Temple, or the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is based upon the account of the presentation of Jesus in Luke 2:22-40. In accordance with Leviticus 12, a woman was to be purified by presenting a lamb as a burnt offering, and either a young pigeon or dove as sin offering. It is customary for Christians in some countries to bring their candles to their local church, where they are blessed and then used for the rest of the year as a symbol of Jesus Christ, the Light of the World. In addition to your candles, you may also bring any other items you want to be blessed. Wednesday, February 2nd at 9:00 am.
