Holy Hour for Life
Join us in prayer
In the Chapel
7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m
All are invited and encouraged to attend and join the Knights of Columbus to participate in the monthly "Holy Hour For Life".
We join together to pray for the Unborn and for the return of Respect and Commitment to the Sanctity of Life in our Society.
The Holy Hour will include:
Recitation of a Scriptural Rosary for the Sanctity of Life
Scripture Reading & Homily by a guest celebrant
Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament
There are those who actively pray and work for an end to abortion. However,did you know that in the United States, since 1973, in a time frame of only 38 years, more than 53 million* unborn babies have been killed? This is, on average, more than three thousand -- every day one unborn baby every 23 seconds. Therefore, we must ask ourselves, Are we doing enough?
Prayer is a strong weapon against evil. In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus tells us, "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."
The Holy Hour for Life is an opportunity to come together as a Christian community. The purpose is to pray for the unborn and that life in all its stages be respected; for we are made in the image and likeness of God who has commanded us, "Thou shall not kill."
