Q. What is the Marian Blue Wave?

Q. Why do we need the Marian Blue Wave?
A. The Marian Blue Wave movement is an outgrowth of our Bringing Jesus to Planned Parenthood through Mary Campaign. Whereas the Mary Campaign encouraged people to pray physically outside of Planned Parenthood facilities, the MBW expands that effort by allowing people anywhere in the world to pray the Rosary to ask our Blessed Mother to close down all Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities and to bring a culture of life to the United States. For a full history of the Marian Blue Wave, follow the link here.

A. The Marian Blue Wave is not a simple campaign, but a movement. It will continue until our specific goals are achieved.
Q. How do I pray as part of the Marian Blue Wave?
A. To pray as part of the Marian Blue Wave, you can sign up on our website to commit to one Rosary a week.

Q. Do I need to pray in front of a Planned Parenthood facility?
