The Helpers of God's Precious Infants (Ottawa-Gatineau) invite you to participate in our first Pro-Life Mass and Rosary Procession on Saturday April 9th, 2011.
Holy Mass, celebrated by Fr. Daryl Kennedy, will begin at 8 am at St. Patrick's Basilica (corner of Kent and Nepean Streets). Following Mass there will be exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. Those who can't join us in the procession are welcome to stay at the church for Eucharistic Adoration. During that time, a Rosary procession will proceed to the abortion facility at 65 Bank Street (about 6 blocks away). We will then return to the church for the Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. Refreshments will follow in the scavi.
This is a pro-life procession with recitation of the Holy Rosary. It is not a protest.
This Lenten sacrifice will help us grow closer to God by experiencing the mystery of His Cross. By denying ourselves comfort in the morning, we will better find out what Calvary is like. Praying for the unborn in this public way will also help us to clearly realize Christ's personal love for each one of us, and know the joy of having responded to His call.
In doing this, we also learn to pray, offer penances, abandon the results of our labours to God, and recognize that it is God's power and love which will overcome the evil of abortion and soften hearts.
