Newly ordained Father Casey Coleman, parochial vicar at St. Vincent de Paul Church, and Bishop Peter Abir Antonysamy, the Bishop of Sultanpet, South India, celebrated the Mass. The Mass was offered for the intercession of “Mary, Temple of the Lord,” Father Coleman said, “so that all may realize the womb is holy.”
After Mass, Father Mark Lawlor, pastor, exposed the Blessed Sacrament in the chapel for a Respect Life Holy Hour, while Father Coleman and seminarian Peter Ascik led more than four dozen faithful to the Family Reproductive Health abortion mill on East Hebron Street to recite the rosary and pray for an end to abortion. Wonderful spiritual leaders leading their flock.
Over 50 people joined us in prayer on the sidewalk, not including those who stayed behind to pray with us in Eucharistic Adoration in the chapel.
