January Respect Life Events

On Monday, January 22, our nation will mark the 51st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal throughout the United States. While we give thanks for overturning this legislation in 2022, the abortion battle continues at the state level.  Parish events, Archdiocesan events, and USCCB resources include:

Adoration Holy Hour for Life
Mondays – 1:00 -2:00 pm in the Adoration Chapel
The hour begins with a Rosary for Life, followed by quiet prayer.  Please join us each week as your schedule allows.  Learn more here.
