MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE [U.S.A.] - (August 30th, 2012) - The September 29th through October 7th,
2012  PRO-LIFE NOVENA FOR UNBORN BABIES, coordinated annually by the Saint Michael the Archangel
Organization, is a special nine days for Masses to be offered and Rosaries to be prayed for the protection
of unborn human persons.  Presently, more than 2,100 Masses and 5,000 Rosary novenas have been registered. (The total count is periodically updated on the homepage of the website .)
The great majority of registrations for both Masses and Rosaries has come from persons in South Korea
who are associated with the Sisters of Mary.
"The PRO-LIFE NOVENA FOR UNBORN BABIES only happens once a year, and it is the only such
happening that I know of that includes Masses and Rosaries within the framework of a novena," said
Patrick Benedict, spokesman for the Saint Michael the Archangel Organization.
"I am thankful for the persons who have already sent in registrations, and I very much hope many other
persons will do the same to indicate they have scheduled to have at least one Mass offered for
the protection of unborn human persons and/or made plans to pray one Rosary each day
of the novena for the protection of unborn human persons," concluded Benedict.
