Light a Candle for the Unborn at the National Shrine

National Prayer Vigil for Life

Light a candle for every innocent Life lost by abortion last year.


Every year in United States, the precious lives of over 600,000 children are terminated before birth by abortion. The beating hearts of innocent babies are silenced before they ever had a chance at Life.

To commemorate the lives of every unborn child who was lost by abortion last year, the National Shrine invites you to light a candle for Life. Join Pro-Life donors throughout the world by lighting a candle for each of the more than 600,000 babies whose souls we commend to God to live with Him forever in Heaven.

All candles will be lit at the National Shrine on Sunday, February 2, the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, also known as Candlemas Day.

Thank you for your generous and prayerful support of the unborn!

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.
