Fr. Frank, Janet Morana, Dr. Theresa Burke, and I participated in the annual NightVision musical festival this past weekend. We flew out to Colorado a couple of days early for some pre-event activities that included a special pastors’ luncheon to help encourage the clergy to preach, teach, and mobilize their congregations in an effort to end abortion and euthanasia.
According to an ASSIST News Service report, last year’s event “[drew] more than 25,000 attendees.”
This year’s NightVision included talks from myself, African American Outreach, and fellow Priests for Life’s Fr. Frank, National Director of Priests for Life and Dr. Theresa Burke, Founder of Rachel’s Vineyard, Nancy Alcorn, and comedians John Gray and Nazareth.
Musical acts included Casting Crowns, Mercy Me, Superchick, Sanctus Real, The Museum, Fireflight, Charlie Hall, and Josh Wilson.
Other entertainment will include Xtreme Sports, a Kids Corner, workshops, fireworks, and more.
According to the article, “Founder and President of Praise Him Ministries, Victoria Hearst commented. NightVision is an event that families come to and the profile message, the gospel of life is all about family. Abortion kills children and children are the heart of the family.”
We had a great time and many families did too!
