On Friday, Jan. 22, 2017, our nation marked the 44th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision which legalized abortion in our country.

Bishop David Walkowiak encouraged all people of the diocese to observe that day as a Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children. 

As part of the observance, Bishop Walkowiak presided at a Mass for life Jan. 23, 2017 at the Cathedral of Saint Andrew, an opportunity for us as Catholics to reaffirm our commitment to the Gospel of life and to the protection of all human life from conception to natural death. People of our diocese making the pilgrimage to the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., this year on Jan. 27, were invited to attend and receive a blessing from the bishop for their journey during the Mass. View photos from the Mass

Nine Days for Life - Four Ways to Participate!
Your prayers matter; Your sacrifices make a difference
Since the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision 44 years ago, more than 55 million children's lives have been lost to abortion, and the lives of millions of their parents have been shattered. In prayerful recognition of these lost and broken lives, the U.S. Bishops invite Catholics and others nationwide to participate in Nine days of prayer, penance and pilgrimage Jan. 21-29.
