Publication Date: January 18, 2024

A Roman Catholic bishop who was recently removed from power by Pope Francis will be honored with a pro-life award due to his track record of advocacy against abortion.

Bishop Emeritus Joseph E. Strickland, former leader of the Diocese of Tyler, Texas, will be presented with a Pro-Life Recognition Award at the 29th annual National Prayer Service.

The event is sponsored by the groups Priests for Life, the National Pro-Life Religious Council, the National Institute for Family and Life Advocates, and Catholics for Catholics on Friday, ahead of the March for Life.
