You are invited to join Catholics throughout the country for 40 days of prayer, penance, and vigils that God may move the heart of our nation towards attitudes that protect and promote the dignity of all human life from conception to natural death. 40 Days for Life in our diocese begins on September 25. October 1, The Feast of St. Theresa of the Child Jesus.
October 4, The Feast of St. Francis of Assisi.
Sunday, October 7, Respect Life Sunday.
Sunday, October 21, World Mission Sunday.
November 1, All Saints Day.
Also, our parish cluster has a special day for public witness. On October 16, we hope to keep a commitment to keep constant prayer and witness in front of the Planned Parenthood facility, 12 Case St., in Norwich. Our commitment lasts from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. You can sign up for an hour (or more, if you wish) at the information table at the rear of our church. The purpose of our vigil is prayer and quiet, steady witness against abortion and for the lives of the unborn.
