2018 Annual Memorial Mass in St. Louis

If you’re not attending the MidWest March for Life, consider going to the 2018 Annual Memorial Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis. The Mass will be held on Saturday, Jan. 27 at 10 a.m.

Here is an excerpt from the description of the Mass via the Archdiocese of St. Louis website:

Every year in January we gather to remember all the babies who have died and all those whose lives continue to be affected by abortion and Roe v. Wade. The goal of this event is to offer prayers for the protection of all unborn children who are in danger of abortion; for wisdom, strength, and fortitude for their mothers and fathers; for the conversion of all those who participate in the abortion industry; and for parents, family members, and friends who have suffered as a result of an abortion experience, that they may find hope and healing.

The Mass, celebrated at the Cathedral Basilica, is preceded by a Rose Procession. The Rose Procession of volunteers honors their peers lost to abortion since 1973.

After Mass, all are invited to participate in a peaceful Rosary Procession to the local Planned Parenthood abortion facility. Those unable to join in the walk are encouraged to pray the Rosary and remain in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the Cathedral. Following the Rosary Procession, Benediction will be offered in the Cathedral.
