NATIONWIDE PRAYER VIGIL FOR LIFE

Catholics across the country are encouraged to observe a nationwide prayer vigil
from Thursday, January 28th to Friday, January 29th 2021 marking the 48th
anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Boton
decisions legalizing abortion through nine months of pregnancy. Since those
decisions, over 60 million abortions have been performed legally in the U.S.

Each January, the National Prayer Vigil for Life is hosted by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’
(USCCB) Pro-Life Secretariat, the Basilica of the National Shrine
of the Immaculate Conception, and The Catholic University of America’s Office of
Campus Ministry to pray for an end to abortion and a greater respect for all
human life.

The schedule of the National Prayer Vigil for Life is below:                                           
  
  Thursday, January 28:
    8:00 PM—National Rosary for Life
    8:30 PM—Opening Mass with Archbishop Naumann
    9:45 PM—Holy Hour for Life
    11:00 PM—Live-stream of holy hours throughout the night

 
  Friday, January 29:
    8:00 AM - Closing Mass with Archbishop Lori

The live television broadcasts will be provided by the Eternal Word Television             
 Network (EWTN) and will also be available via live-stream on the Basilica’s
 
website. Live-streaming information for the overnight bishop-led holy

If you would like to be part of any of these ministries, please call  the rectory at (413)443-6960
and your name will be put on the list to be called.  If you can think of any other potential
ministry groups, please let us know. Sacred Heart Parish is also looking for people who are willing to spend time with homebound parishioners  who are lonely, elderly, suffering, or sick. You don’t need to have a professional background, but you  do need a willingness to listen, be empathetic,
and offer reassurance that our  community has not forgotten  them. Sacred Heart will train you
to visit these people in their home, in the hospital or in a nursing home and take them the 
Eucharist (if they desire that) Call the rectory at(413)443-6960 

E-Mail Address: Today more than ever, it is important to strengthen our communication within our parish. On-line and digital engagement provides us a wonderful opportunity to provide on-going, timely and important communications. Please help us develop a stronger connection to you, by simply submitting your  e-mail address to: pinkchurch@aol.com

Prayer Line: We are in need of people to pray for our prayer line intentions. This is so
easy to do, and perfect for this time of isolation. We have a prayer line every week or so.
You can receive a list either by phone or e-mail, of the first names and their prayer
request. All we ask is that you pray for these people and their intentions. If interested,
please call Nancy McGill at (413)443-6942 or e-mail  nancyvgm904@gmail.com.
