Priests for Life-Staten Island, NY


STATEN ISLAND, NY  – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, the Church’s largest pro-life ministry, announced today the beginning of the “Gospel of Life Pilgrimage” to Rome.

“For many months, Priests for Life has been announcing and preparing for the special Day of Life which is an official part of the Catholic Church’s Year of Faith. The Church wants to make it clear that to defend, welcome and nurture the gift of human life is integral to the faith. To say ‘Yes’ to Jesus Christ is to say ‘Yes’ to life,” Fr. Pavone explained.

On Saturday, June 15, there will be several educational seminars and prayer events sponsored by the Vatican, and on Sunday, June 16, a Mass with Pope Francis in Saint Peter’s Square. The pilgrimage Priests for Life has organized has a full capacity number of 150 people who travel to Rome tonight and will have Masses, tours, and talks with Fr. Frank Pavone, Janet Morana, Teresa Tomeo, and Steve and Janet Ray in the days prior to the Vatican events.

“As faithful from around the world gather with the Pope this weekend, one of our key prayer intentions will be for the healing of all mothers and fathers who have been wounded by abortion,” said Janet Morana, who co-founded the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. “The Gospel of Life is the Gospel of Mercy.”

“I hope all of our Catholic Radio Family will follow us on Ave Maria and EWTN radio, as we report on the events as well as pro-life efforts and issues around the world that will be discussed at the conference,” Teresa Tomeo said.

During the pilgrimage, people will be able to see daily updates and commentary at and hear Ms. Tomeo’s radio updates. Priests for Life encourages families, groups, and parishes to join in prayer with the Holy Father and all those who will be gathered in Rome this coming weekend, that the gift of human life may be ever more respected and protected.
