"Love cannot remain by itself--it has no meaning.
Love has to be put into action, and that action is service."
-Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Diocesan Wide Opportunities:
40 Days for Life ND
The 40 Days for Life national campaign is a three-fold effort of prayer, fasting, and peaceful vigil at abortion facilities that is being conducted in cities across our nation. At St. Michael’s we are committed to protecting the right to life from conception to natural death. Please join us in offering prayers and sacrifices always – but especially during these 40 Days - to God asking for an end to abortion in our state and for healing for all of those who have been affected by abortions.
