Marks the Anniversary of Roe v. Wade
GAYLORD, MICHIGAN — Catholics across the Diocese of Gaylord are invited to join in the observance of the Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children on January 22, 2021. This date marks the 48th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions which legalized abortion. Since that time, more than 60 million legalized abortions have taken place. Each January, Catholics come together to pray for an end to abortion and for a greater respect for all human life.
On January 22, all are welcome to participate in the Mass For Giving Thanks to God for the Gift of Human Life, which will be celebrated by Bishop Walter A. Hurley, Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Gaylord, at St. Mary Cathedral in Gaylord at 12:15 p.m. The livestream will be available at www.dioceseofgaylord.org.
