National Prayer Service to Memorialize Miss Nellie Gray

 

Priests for Life


8/16/2012

       
   
 

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life and President of the National Pro-life Religious Council, announced today that the national pro-life prayer service to be held on the morning of Friday, January 25, in Washington, D.C. will be dedicated to the memory of Miss Nellie Gray, who led the March for Life every year since 1974.

The service, known as the National Memorial for the Pre-Born and Their Mothers and Fathers, is interdenominational, and has taken place for nearly two decades. The planning for the January service has been in the works for a couple of years already, due to the significance of this January being the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade.

“Now, we have an even deeper meaning to the service,” said Fr. Pavone. “We will thank the Lord for Nellie, we will commend her to the Author of Life, and we will beg God that He will bestow on us all a double-portion of her spirit. Attending this service will be a wonderful way to honor her memory and renew our determination to fulfill her vision.”

The service will take place from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Jan. 25 in the DAR Constitution Hall, 1776 D Street Northwest, Washington, D.C. It is open to the public. That same afternoon, the March for Life, which Nellie Gray led, will take place. To keep up to date as plans progress for the morning prayer service and other events regarding the 40th anniversary of Roe, visit www.roevswade40.com.

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.
