Faithful Gather to Pray for an End to Abortion

Posted on September 24, 2020 in: 40DaysForLife, ProLife

Faithful Gather to Pray for an End to Abortion

The 13th year of participation in the 40 Days for Life Campaign  began with a Mass from the Cathedral of Saint Patrick.  In addition to the five clergy who concelebrated the Mass, the cathedral was near COVID-19 guideline capacity of 100 socially distanced participants.

Reverend Brian Maxwell, the main celebrant and homilist for the Mass, began the liturgy with these words: “We gather together on a mission to peacefully pray for an end to abortion in our community and our country. We pray tonight to seek God’s favor to turn hearts and minds and thus hopefully turn this from a culture of death to a culture of life. . .” 

Father Maxwell, in his homily, drew together points made by some of our most recent saints regarding the impact that abortion has on the common good of society. The entire vigil Mass, including the homily, can be viewed at NorwichDiocese.org/40DaysforLife.
