Respect Life Month is joining in prayer at St Bridget

Novena: 9 Days for Life

One of the simplest ways our parish can unite during Respect Life Month is joining in prayer. Praying a Novena is an extremely accessible, yet powerful way to pray for a specific intention. To participate in our parish-wide Novena for Life, all you need to do is pray the designated prayer once a day, for nine days in a row, starting January 14th, and ending January 22nd.

Respect Life Holy Hour

Spending time in front of our Lord in the Eucharist is a wonderful opportunity for quiet prayer and reflection. On January 15th at 6:30 p.m. we will have Exposition and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
