There are THREE special events in New Mexico that we’d like to encourage you to attend.
Sanctity of Life Awareness & Unity Day Mass/March/Rally Wed Jan 20 in Santa Fe
Join us as the three dioceses of New Mexico prayerfully mark the 43rd anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade legalizing abortion with a Sanctity of Life Awareness and Unity Day on January 20, 2016. The day includes a noon Mass with the three bishops of New Mexico, Archbishop John C. Wester (Archdiocese of Santa Fe), Bishop Oscar Cantú (Diocese of Las Cruces) and Bishop James S. Wall (Diocese of Gallup) at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis in Santa Fe, a prayer procession and rally with Allen Sánchez at the Roundhouse.
Participants are asked to bring baby items like diapers, blankets, bottles, etc. and/or socks and toiletries for the elderly to be collected at the Mass and distributed to organizations that provide support to expectant mothers in need or nursing homes.
