STATEN ISLAND, NY – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today announced that plans are under way for a special prayer gathering in 2013 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe vs. Wade decision.
“In January of 2013, in observance of the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, Priests for Life, its family of Gospel of Life Ministries, and the National Pro-life Religious Council, along with many other groups, will convene a large interdenominational prayer gathering in Washington, D.C.,” Father Pavone said.
“Each year, of course, we have a prayer service on Capitol Hill, as do many other groups. This special occasion will be marked by the effort to bring these various separate initiatives together into a common expression of our Christian commitment to end the killing.
“Stay tuned for more information at www.PrayerCampaign.org as the plans progress.”
