Good Friday Prayer Vigil
This Good Friday, join us in praying for the 15 people who have been executed since Good Friday 2020 and for an end to all executions.
Holy Saturday Prayer Service
CMN's Holy Saturday Prayer Service serves as a way to explore one of the more profound - and underutilized - days of the liturgical year. Beginning from the darkness of Good Friday, this experiential prayer service invites participants to reflect on the role of harm in their own lives; and the lives of those impacted by the continued use of the death penalty and the larger criminal justice system.
2018 Lenten Reflections and Tools
Join us during the Lenten season for prayerful reflection and contemplation. Every Monday receive a special Lenten reflection for the coming Sunday. Available online and on social media. These reflections will unpack the scripture readings for the week through the lens of justice and mercy. This year, CMN has worked with our partners in different states for our weekly reflections.
Feast of St. Joseph Prayer Service
March 19th is the feast day of St. Joseph, the patron saint of workers, travelers, fathers, immigrants, and the Congregation of St. Joseph, of which CMN is a sponsored ministry. Join CMN in honoring the life of St Joseph that inspires the great work of the so many women religious with this prayer service.
