Consultation of the Faithful for Synod on the Family. An online survey seeks input to be compiled into a report sent to the Holy See, which will then prepare the "Working Document" for the October 2015 Synod on the Family.
A period of prayer, penance and pilgrimage, Jan. 17-25, will mark the anniversary of the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision, Roe v Wade, which legalized abortion throughout pregnancy. The “9 Days for Life” novena encourages nationwide solidarity in prayer for daily intentions, including for couples experiencing infertility, those mourning the loss of a child through abortion, children in need of adoptive homes, and for an end to abortion and use of the death penalty.
