LIFE PROGRAMS UPDATE FOR JANUARY 2020
GA MARCH FOR LIFE AND 9 DAY NOVENA
On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court legalized abortion throughout the United States in its companion decisions Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton. Since that time, millions of children have lost their lives and millions of women and families have been wounded by abortion.
In 2020, this dreaded anniversary falls on the same day as the Georgia March for Life on Wednesday, January 22, 2020. Please join parishioners and friends of St. Anthony’s and St. Catherine’s in showing our support for life by marching in Atlanta on this day. A signup sheet is available in the back of church on the bulletin board. We will be taking the pilgrimage in several 15 passenger vans. Transportation is free thanks to the Knights of Columbus, but seating is limited so please sign up early. Additional carpools may be arranged if necessary.
Additionally, the US Bishops sponsor an annual, nationwide novena called
“9 Days for Life.” Each day for nine days, a different intention is featured, accompanied by a short reflection, suggested actions, and related information as we pray for the respect and protection of every human life.
Sign up to receive the novena by email, text message, or an app at www.9daysforlife.comor just text 9Days to 55000 and the daily prayer and reflections will be texted directly to your phone.
