Each year, CMN kicks of #RespectLifeMonth with nine days of prayer.

A Novena to End the Death Penalty

CMN prays this novena each year starting on October 1, which begins Respect Life Month, celebrated each October. These nine days of prayer prepare us for World Day Against the Death Penalty (October 10).

You are welcome to pray the novena at any point during the year. Click the button below to download this resource.
