Join the nationwide call to pray for the Supreme Court justices as they deliberate the Dobbs vs Jackson case, starting December 1.  

Pray for the gift of discernment and wisdom on the part of the justices during their deliberation. Dobbs refers to a 2018 Mississippi law that prohibits abortion in the state of Mississippi after 15 weeks of gestation.   Jackson refers to Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a Mississippi abortion facility.  Some believe there is the potential for the Supreme Court justices to overturn or alter parts of the Court’s 1973 Roe v Wade decision which has legalized abortion. The Court’s final opinion will be made public in May or June of 2022.

 Opportunities to Pray for Dobbs and the Justices:

  1. Pray before the Blessed Sacrament after the 8:00 am Mass at St. Agnes on Tues, Nov 30 (the eve of oral arguments).  Join a community of prayers in praying the rosary after the 8 am Mass OR in praying prayers to the Sacred and Merciful Heart of Jesus at 5:15 - 5:45 pm.  A prayer program will be provided or can be downloaded here.
