Light a Candle at the National Shrine

National Prayer Vigil for Life

"You formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb. I praise you, because I am wonderfully made; wonderful are your works!" (Psalm 139:13-14)


Unite your prayers with those of Our Lady by lighting a candle here at the National Shrine. Vigil candles will burn for 5 days, lifting up your fervent prayers for the protection of all human life to God through the Blessed Virgin Mary's loving intercession.

We invite you to join us for the 2023 National Prayer Vigil for Life on January 19-January 20. You can view the National Prayer Vigil for Life Schedule of Events here.

No offering is required for prayer. If you are unable to make a donation at this time, you may submit a prayer request through our Request a Prayer form.
