My Dear Parishioners,
This fall, Catholics in the Diocese of Las Vegas along with Christians of all denominations are offered the opportunity to promote the dignity of human life through prayer, fasting and advocacy by participating in a worthy ecumenical campaign. The “40 Days for Life” campaign begins September 23 through November 1, 2015.
As a result of the many who have participated in prayer and fasting during previous “40 Days for Life” campaigns, more than 10,331 lives have been saved, many right here in Las Vegas. Sadly, abortions are still being performed in Nevada every year, some late term pregnancies.
As Catholics we believe in the sacredness of life from conception to natural death. The promotion of the dignity of the human person is a foundation of Catholic teaching. As followers of Christ we are called to be a witness to this truth by praying, teaching, advocacy and care of those in need.
I encourage all parishioners to prayerfully consider taking an active role in promoting a culture of life in Nevada. For more information please contact Nancy Finley and Karen Kinney email: lv40DaysForLife@gmail.com
Assuring you of my prayers, I remain
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Joseph A. Pepe, D.D., J.C.D.
Bishop of Las Vegas
