About the Vigils

On the First Friday of each month, Catholic Mobilizing Network holds a Virtual Prayer Vigil to lament upcoming executions and bear witness to the inviolable dignity of all human life.

These virtual spaces offer a place to pray together as a faith community in response to the injustice of the death penalty. They include time for guided prayer, petitions, Scripture reflections, and contemplative silence. The vigils feature the voices of Catholic bishops, Church leaders, and allies across the death penalty abolition movement.

Our next First Friday Prayer Vigil is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 4 at 2 p.m. ET (11 a.m. PT). The Scripture reflection will be offered by Sr. Anita Baird, DHM.


Virtual prayer vigils are held live via Zoom conference and livestreamed on CMN's Facebook page. The day of the vigil, all registrants will receive an email with a link and additional instructions on how to join the event. RSVP below.
