Ash Wednesday Planned Parenthood Prayer Vigil


Here are a couple of photos of the group from St Peter Cathedral Parish at the end of our hour's vigil outside Marquette's Planned Parenthood facility. We were there from 3:45 - 4:45pm. There was no business going on but our main reason for being there was prayer. A good number of car drivers honked in support.


Times of vigils tomorrow and thereafter are being circulated to those who have indicated a willingness to participate. Let me know if you'd like to be included.

  1. Bravo Father John and your whole group for braving that chilly weather and showing up to pray. The snow looks pretty.

    Yesterday was great! I've done that hundreds of times, and that was the most peaceful one yet!

    In the summer of 2005, I walked 1200 miles through seven states with 16 other catholic youth for the American Life League. We prayed at dozens of abortions clinics. I was spit at, verbally assaulted, has a can of pop thrown at me, hit-on, you name it! We would try and counsel the women and men who entered and left the clinics. The saddest part is when they go in pregnant, and come out childless. And seeing young adults being dragged in by their parents was awful to witness, as well. But then when you are able to help just one mom, and convince her to not have an abortion, it's all worth it =)
