Below is a request from Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life for the National Prayer Service that will take place in Washington DC on the morning of the March for Life. If you are planning to travel to Washington to attend the March, please consider attending this prayer service.
I am requesting your help in promoting the National Prayer Service, a major pro-life prayer event that Priests for Life plans each year for the morning of the March for Life in Washington, DC.
It will take place on Friday, January 21, 2022 from 8:30 – 10:30 a.m. at DAR Constitution Hall, 1776 D St., NW (18th and D St), Washington, DC. We will begin with a 7:30 a.m. Mass celebrated by Bishop Joseph Coffey.
Below you will see special letter of invite from him.
We will have a major Christian musician performing at the event. An official announcement will be made soon.
I will deliver the sermon at the 8:30 a.m. prayer service and Danielle D’Souza Gill will be the emcee for the event.
We will present pro-life recognition awards to the pro-life activists and legislators of Texas and Mississippi responsible for the strong pro-life bills in those states.
Texas Award Recipients for the Texas Heartbeat bill:
John Seago, Legislative Director, Texas Right To Life
Texas Senator Bryan Hughes
Janet Porter, Spearheaded the idea of heartbeat bills
Mississippi Award Recipients for the law protecting babies in the womb starting at 15-weeks gestation, which the Supreme Court is currently reviewing in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health:
Mississippi Senator Angela Hill
Mississippi Senator Joey Fillingane
Mississippi Representative Becky Currie, author of the bill
I am asking your help in promoting this event. We want as many people as possible to come to pray with us to commemorate the tragic Roe vs. Wade decision and to express gratitude to the award recipients for their tremendous work!
I invite you to join me in Washington, DC on the morning of the March for Life, Friday, January 21, 2022 from 8:30-10:30 a.m., for the Annual National Memorial for the Pre-Born and Their Mothers and Fathers at historic Constitution Hall.
What a great way to start the day – with prayer, songs of praise and inspiring talks, leaving you with a renewed focus on our mission before heading to march and witness on the streets of Washington.
There is plenty of room at Constitution Hall for your entire parish or school group to attend.
Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director, Priests for Life will give the sermon and pro-life recognition awards will be given to the people of Texas responsible for the Heartbeat Bill and the people of Mississippi responsible for Mississippi’s law, the “Gestational Age Act,” protecting babies starting at 15 weeks. This is the law that the Supreme Court is now reviewing.
I encourage my brother clergy to attend as well.
This event is also an opportunity to join with our brothers and sisters in different Christian denominations as we unite in our one common purpose of ending abortion.
It was the Saturday before Christmas and the sidewalks of both abortion facilities saw a sidewalk full of peaceful, loving prayer warriors covering both denominations
Philadelphia Women’s Center
Regular vigil participants were graced with the [presence of 75 high school and college students from Philly Mission Youth who started their morning outside of the biggest murder center in Philadelphia that is not affiliate with Planned Parenthood.
They prayed the rosary, offered free help for women during their hour of great need, and sung some Christmas carols.
Meanwhile, the Helpers’ of God’s Precious Infants were able to be present outside of Planned Parenthood in Center City. They offered their vigil in memory of Sandy Slater and Kevin Andre, two pro-life activists who died this month.
The Helpers were graced by Sidewalk Servants and Abolish Abortion groups alike. They were met with some jeers and even escorts mocking pro-lifers, yet they kept the faith.
One sidewalk advocate from Abolish Abortion offered help to a couple that went inside the facility while another held a conversation with people who were curious at their presence.
Sadly, lives were scheduled to die at both places. We can only hope that the presence of these peaceful, loving people stir the conscience of patients, volunteers, and workers of both places that life in the womb has value and is worthy of protecting.
The year continues to wind down. We are at the halfway point of autumn and we will be at a point where we do early Christmas shopping, plan for the holidays, and enjoy the fall activities that we shall enjoy while they last. There is still opportunities to defend life which brings us to ideas and events.
Vote in the 2021 General Election. We have the gubernational elections in NJ and VA. We also have civic elections that must get your attention and vote.
Take part in the First Friday and Saturday devotions.
Raise awareness on infertility and miscarraiges. Offer your love and support for these moms who carry this heavy cross.
The Susan B Anthony List knows that they have much work to do if they want to secure a pro-life majority during the 2022 mid-term elections let alone flip Harrisburg from pro-abortion to pro-life.
Thanks to the help of 30 students from Benedictine College, who took time out of their fall break, had the opportunity to knock on doors around the Greater Philadelphia area.
They wore the blue shirt with the name of the organization emblazoned on the left side of their shirt.
In the span of just three days, the small but might group set a record of 25,305 doors knocked during the course of the weekend. They had good and bad encounters. Their message was clear: abortion, at any stage, is wrong.
To learn more about how to get involved with the Susan b Anthony List, see my previous blogpost on working for them. Also, learn of the facts about this beloved pro-life feminist.
