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 24 though November 2, 2014.

As a result of the many who have participated in prayer and fasting during previous "40 Days for Life" campaigns, many lives have been saved from abortion and one abortion facility, where prayer had taken place has actually been closed. Sadly, abortions are still being performed in Nevada every year, some late term pregnancies, because so many men and women consider abortion as a solution due to the pressures of society and are often not presented with other alternatives.

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 by giving your most precious gift of time to "40 Days for Life".

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
