Building a culture that cherishes

and protects every human life.

9 Days for Life: January 19 – 27, 2022

Pray to protect human life!

9 Days for Life is a novena for the protection of human life. Each day’s intention is accompanied by a short reflection and suggested actions to help build a culture of life. 

Anniversary of Roe v. Wade

January 22 is designated as a particular day of prayer and penance, called the “Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children.”

Our January Action Guide provides resources to help parishes, schools, families, ministries, and individual Catholics participate in this important day of prayer and penance.


Watch the webinar in which USCCB staff walk through the available materials and explain how to remember this solemn anniversary through existing programming or special activities.
