40 Days for Life: Lent 2020

"Before I formed you in your mother's womb, I knew you." - Jeremiah 1:15

The Respect for Life Ministry at St. Alphonsus needs your help. We need your voice to speak out, to fast, and to pray for those who have no voice. Please join us to help end abortion and help bring healing to those deeply wounded by it.

Here are three ways you can help:

1.      40 Days - 40 Hours of Adoration: Beginning on Ash Wednesday, February 26, St. Al's Respect Life Ministry invites you to join in and "Pray & Fast for Life."  We invite all to join us in committing to one Holy Hour to "Pray & Fast for Life" before the Blessed Sacrament in our Adoration Chapel. Registration is available after weekend Masses or you contact Margaret Dillon (763-566-4990) or Gary Lien (763-443-6677 and/or [email protected]).

2.      Pro-Life Rosary: Mondays and Wednesdays at 7:30 am (after 7:00 am Mass);
                                       Weekdays at 8:00 am (before 8:30 am Mass);
                                       Saturdays 8:30 am
(after 8:00 am Mass).

3.      A Holy Hour for Life: Monday, March 16, at 6:30 pm in the church (after 6:00 pm Mass).
                                                 Hosted by the Redemptorists and St. Al's Respect for
