Catholic leaders hosting three events in DC for Week of Prayer and Fasting

.- Washington will host three national events for the 15th Annual International Week of Prayer and Fasting next month. The goals of the International Week of Prayer and Fasting are to promote the culture of life, the conversion of nations and an end to abortion.

The organizers are asking people to participate by fasting, daily Masses and prayer, such as Holy Hours, Rosaries, Divine Mercy Chaplets and confession.

Three days of events have been organized in Washington, from Oct. 6 to 8.

The first day will feature a Youth and Young Adult Festival at Catholic University of America, Pryzbyla Center. Speakers include Bishop Sam Jacobs, Ryan O'Hara of Youth Arise and chastity speaker Jason Evert.

The Culture of Life Awards Banquet will be held the following day at Georgetown University Conference Center. Presidential Candidate Alan Keyes, EWTN personality Raymond Arroyo, Congressman Chris Smith and actor Eduardo Verastegui are expected to attend.

A Eucharistic Prayer Day at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception will be held on Oct. 8, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The speakers will include Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life, Fr. Clement Machado of the Vatican and pro-life activist Bobby Schindler known for trying to stop his sister Terri Schindler-Schiavo from being euthanized.
