9 Days For Life | | 9 Días por la Vida

Our nation will mark the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal throughout the U.S. Since that tragic decision, more than 56 million children’s lives have been lost to abortion, and many suffer that loss — often in silence.

Join thousands of Catholics across the country in prayer for a Culture of Life from  January 18, 2017 – January 26, 2018.


  • 9 Days for Life is an annual period of prayer and action focused on cherishing the gift of every person’s life. 
  • Surrounding the Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children*, the overarching intention of the centerpiece novena is the end to abortion.
  • However, the novena also highlights many other facets of respecting each other’s God-given dignity, especially by respecting human life at every stage and in every circumstance.
  • 9 Days for Life is an opportunity to:
    • PRAY for the respect and protection of each person’s life;
    • GATHER together in prayer, action, and fellowship with others;
    • SHARE your stories online!
