Sign up to answer the U.S. Bishops' Call to Prayer
NEW Bulletin Insert! (Life, Marriage & Religious Liberty: Pray, Fast, Act)
(Other versions are available).
The U.S. Bishops are encouraging Catholics throughout the country to offer their Friday acts of sacrifice and penance, and particularly to abstain from meat and fast on Fridays, for the intention of the protection of Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty.
Answer this call to prayer, penance, and sacrifice by making a pledge to abstain from meat and to fast on Fridays.
Sign your name to the online pledge below, and join your spiritual and bodily sacrifice with others in the Church for these intentions.
Encourage others to join the movement by sharing this page and our Facebook page with them!

I pledge to join the bishops' call to prayer by fasting and abstaining from meat on Fridays for the intention of the protection of Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty.
