Fridays hold special significance in the Catholic tradition. Christ was crucified on a Friday, and first Friday devotions have been observed for hundreds of years. At the center of these devotions is the recognition that people desire to draw closer to and learn from the Sacred Heart of Christ, which is full of love and mercy for humanity.
Catholic Mobilizing Network (CMN) created Faith & Action First Fridays as a way to allow Christ’s mercy to transform our broken criminal legal system and eradicate the use of capital punishment. On the first Friday of each month, CMN will feature a new selection of timely and impactful resources for education, advocacy, and prayer.
