In 2018 we once again invite all Catholics to join together to pray the 54 day Novena for Our Nation from the August 15 Feast of the Assumption through the October 7 Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. We ask all then to join together on October 7 in praying the Rosary Coast to Coast.
In 2013 the USCCB launched Call to Prayer for Life, Marriage and Religious Liberty. The intent of Call to Prayer is to invite Catholics in their parishes and dioceses to pray and sacrifice for rebuilding a culture favorable to life and marriage and for increased protections of religious liberty. Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco stated: “With the challenges this country is facing, it is hoped this call to prayer and penance will help build awareness among the faithful as well as spiritual stamina and courage for effective witness.” Novena for Our Nation and National Rosary Rally have been acting upon that Call from our Bishops for the past 2 year and again in 2018; taking it to a national level. Now Rosary Coast to Coast invites Catholics to join together in praying together for these intentions at the same time on the October 7 Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.
