Human Trafficking Awareness and Prayer Day

Sunday February 8, 2015 marked the first International Day of Prayer and Awareness against Human Trafficking.  Held on the feast of St. Josephine Bakhita, a Catholic sister who escaped slavery in 1889, the day promoted awareness of trafficking and offered “compounded prayer” to survivors of trafficking. Find out more about this first ever day of prayer, and some of the Catholic Church’s work against trafficking in the U.S. and globally.
