Leader Resources

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. Resources for leaders are available below, including novena printables, graphics, sample announcements, and more.


The 9 Days for Life novena is available as daily formatted printables or as text-only files. Printed versions are great for use in parishes, schools, and other ministries to pray the novena together as a community.

You can also access each day's content as individual webpages.



Graphics are available for use in bulletins, newsletters, social media, diocesan newspapers, etc. 

These promotional and daily intention graphics can be used without further permission, provided that these reproduction guidelines are followed.
