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, May 7 at 2 p.m. EDT / 11 a.m. PDT. Please RSVP below to attend.
**The First Friday of April is Good Friday. No live vigil will take place. Please click here to view a special, pre-recorded prayer vigil for Good Friday 2021.
