From the archdiocesan Pro-Life Office:
Witness for Life ~ Sat, Sept 12th
8am Mass at Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral, NYC
Come to all or part of the morning.
Note: The Witness for Life usually takes place the first Sat of each month – this month Planned Parenthood is closed on the 1st Sat (due to Labor Day) and also the Sisters of Life will be welcoming 9 new postulants to our community – therefore the change in date.
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass begins our day in Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament follows, then people can either remain in the church to adore our Lord or attend the rosary procession to the local abortion clinic (2 blocks away – Planned Parenthood).
Upon return from the clinic (approx 10:15am) we will have a social (complete with coffee and bagels) with a short (10 mins) presentation by the Sisters of Life. You will hear of concrete ways to be of service, as Co-Workers, helping vulnerable pregnant women that are currently being served by the Sisters.
Promote this to your friends and keep the spiritual success of this effort for Life in your daily prayers.
Sr. Lucy Marie
