Each year on January 22nd we observe a Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children, remembering the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision. Thousands gather in Washington, D.C. for the “March for Life,” including several hundred students and faithful from the Diocese of Cleveland. For the past several years, Bishop Lennon has celebrated a Mass for Life at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in solidarity with those in our nation’s capital.
We ask all parishes to include a special intercession in the Universal Prayer on Sunday, January 22, so that even those who are unable to attend the Cathedral liturgy may be joined together in prayerful solidarity.
