A Call to Prayer

What is the Call to Prayer?

The U.S. bishops are inviting the faithful nationwide to join a movement of prayer, penance, and sacrifice for the sake of renewing a culture of life, marriage, and religious liberty in our country.

"The pastoral strategy is essentially a call and encouragement to prayer and sacrifice - it's meant to be simple. ... Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty are not only foundational to Catholic social teaching but also fundamental to the good of society." - Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone, from the news releaseabout the Call to Prayer (Dec. 6, 2012)
