The Kansas Constitution begins by giving thanks to “Almighty God for our civil and religious privileges.” It then says: “All men are possessed of equal and inalienable natural rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

On April 26, 2019, the Kansas Supreme Court held in Hodes & Nauser MDs v. Schmidt that these words protect a supposed natural right to abortion. Join Archbishop Naumann in praying for an end to the supposed natural right to abortion in our state and a conversion of hearts so that Life might once again be protected as was intended by our forefathers.  In reparation for the harms against the unborn, expectant women and families, we encourage parishes to offer an opportunity for prayer.  

Communal prayer could be in the form of:

  • A holy hour with adoration
  • The recitation of the Divine Mercy Chaplet either in the church or adoration chapel, or if that is not possible, to be done individually, preferable at the mercy hour of 3:00 pm
  • A Rosary

A sample holy hour format can be found at HERE.
