National Night of Prayer
Forestville, New York –
Each year the Feast of the Immaculate Conception takes place from 9 pm December 8 to 1 am December 9. It was on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (then celebrated on December 9) that Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Americas and the unborn, first appeared to St. Juan Diego. The National Night of Prayer bridges these two feasts to honor our Blessed Mother and to pray for the sanctity of all human life.
