National Night of Prayer for Life
The Champaign County Region of Parishes will be
participating in National Night of Prayer for Life which begins at 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 8th and goes through 1:00 a.m. on Sunday,
December 9th, bridging the Feast of the
Immaculate Conception and the anniversary of the appearance of Our Lady of Guadalupe (patroness of the unborn). The National Prayer for Life is one means of responding to Our Lady’s call to pray the rosary for peace, which includes leading our nation away from a culture of death and toward respect for all life from conception until natural death.
Our celebration will be at St. Mary Church and will
include Eucharistic Exposition and Adoration, 20
decades of the Rosary, prayers to St. Michael, silent prayer, hymns, and Benediction.
Everyone is encouraged to attend, but we are looking for at least four people to sign up to be at the church for one hour during this night of prayer.
Available time periods are
9:00 p.m.—10:00 p.m.
10:00 p.m.—11:00 p.m.
Please call the parish office to sign up for an hour.
Those who are unable to attend are asked to pray the rosary (a full 20 decades if you are able), sometime
between 9:00 p.m. on Saturday and 1:00 a.m. on
