First Annual International Day of Prayer and Awareness against Human Trafficking

February 8, 2015 is the feast day of St. Josephine Bakhita and marks the first International Day of Prayer and Awareness against Human Trafficking.  Human trafficking is modern-day slavery that exploits vulnerable persons, often taking victims across international borders and leaving them without the information or ability to flee their plight.  This day is an opportunity to reflect upon the factors in society that lead to trafficking, explore anti-trafficking efforts, and to advocate for the human dignity of this vulnerable group. 

National Day of Prayer for Survivors and Victims of Human Trafficking

This weekend, in recognition of the feast of St. Josephine Bakhita and the National Day of Prayer for Survivors and Victims of Human Trafficking, thousands of churches across the country will join together in prayer to end human trafficking.
