Parishes throughout the archdiocese will participate in the annual National Night of Prayer for Life Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 8-9.
Participants pray for an end to abortion and all offenses against the dignity of the human person; to make reparation for those sins; and for healing for those who suffer because of them.
The service usually consists of four hours of Eucharistic adoration, recitation of the Rosary and other prayers, silent meditation and Benediction.
