Re-posting this event as the times were changed since this was first posted.  The Prayer Vigil at the Philadelphia Women’s Center is now scheduled to begin at 9:00 am and Mass at Holy Redeemer Church at 10:30 am.  The address of both the abortuary and the church is listed below. 

So many lives have been touched by John Stanton. He was a very quiet, gentle man, but one who had a very powerful presence in our pro-life community.  John wasn’t just the founder of the Pro-Life Union, he was also the Father of the Pro-Life Movement in Southeast Pennsylvania and beyond.

I encourage everyone in the SE Pennsylvania area to make an effort to attend these events to honor John’s memory.
