Join Us to Pray For
Abuse Survivors and Those They Love
September 29, 2017
5:30 pm Pacific / 8:30 pm Eastern
What’s It About?
Together we will pray for all survivors of abuse, regardless of who the abuser was, and for their families, loved ones, friends, neighbors and parishes. We will also pray for all affected by abuse in the Catholic Church, including priests, deacons, sisters and other religious.
We seek to amplify the prayers for victims of abuse and all others being raised around the world in response to the Pope’s call for us to join together. This prayer service will join with the prayers of services held by the USCCB on the National Day Prayer, but has been timed to avoid overlapping dates.
A 30-minute prayer service will be led by Catholic survivors of abuse and focus on a healing litany of love.
