*Intercessory Fasting and Prayer Team

You are invited to join our Fasting and Prayer Team by taking one    day a week to pray and fast for all pro-life matters.  Each week on the selected day of the week, the Team Member will fast and spend time in prayer for matters pertaining to pro-life and for a world where abortion is unthinkable.

Fasting can be from traditional things like food or meals or it can be      non-traditional, like fasting from television, the internet/social media,  or any activity that can be replaced with prayer time.  Designate time    during this day praying for pro-life matters.  Some pray during Adoration and others say a rosary as part of their designated prayer time.
