The Multi Parish Respect Life Knowledge and Prayer Series announces a special Mass For Life. This liturgy, Sunday, January 20, 5:30 PM at St. Michael Parish, 14327 Highland, Orland Park will be concelebrated by representatives of Our Lady of the Woods, St. Bernard’s, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Michael, Our Mother of Good Counsel and Annunciation Byzantine Catholic parishes. This Mass celebrates God’s greatest gift of life and allow us to join together to pray for an uncovering of the truth concerning the greatest human rights and moral violation of our time – legalized abortion on demand. This Mass begins the seventh year of the Knowledge and Prayer series sponsored by the 6 parishes above. Come to the Mass and receive the 2019 schedule of events.
Abortion was legalized on January 22, 1973, in the now-infamous Supreme Court decisions in Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton. People of many faiths or no faith are welcome to join us in prayer for the overturning of this decision and the restoration of respect for life from conception to natural death.
