Perrin AtishaFr. Rodney AbassoFr. John JaddouFr. Marcus Shammami, and Fr. Daniel Shaba — the group peacefully prayed and protested for the protection and dignity of our unborn brothers and sisters.

To prepare for the march, the group celebrated Mass on Thursday, January 20 at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church. They celebrated Mass the following day at St. Dominic Catholic Church before joining thousands on Friday, January 21 for the March for Life.

We continue to pray for an end to abortion and the sanctity of all human life!
