Archbishop Vigneron to celebrate Mass; speak at pro-life conference on January 22

Please take note of this opportunity here in the Archdiocese of Detroit - a conference, a Mass celebrated by our archbishop, and more on January 22 = all as people prepare for the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and the March for Life in Washington DC.

Detroit — The Archdiocese of Detroit will mark the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision with a conference designed to revivify and deepen pro-life activism.

The 1973 decision effectively legalized abortion on demand in the United States, and its anniversary has become the focus of annual demonstrations and other events lamenting its effects and rallying supporters of unborn children’s right to life.

The Saturday, January 22, conference at Sacred Heart Major Seminary will feature speakers and workshops on the theme of “Life is a Gift – Giving Witness to the Sacredness of all Human Life.”

The conference was the idea of Archbishop Allen Vigneron, who will also be one of the day’s speakers.

“The archbishop wanted to renew the message of the Gospel of Life in our archdiocese,” said Socorro Truchan, marriage, family and pro-life coordinator for the archdiocesan Office of Evangelization and Catechesis.

The conference will be in addition to the annual archdiocesan Mass for Life, to be celebrated the previous weekend, on Sunday, Jan. 16, at 11 a.m., at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit.

Archbishop Vigneron will also be blessing buses headed to the March for Life.  Read the rest of the article: Speakers to stress that ‘Life is a Gift’ at The Michigan Catholic
