PALM BEACH GARDENS | Jan. 21-23, 2022, was a busy weekend for Catholics in the Diocese of Palm Beach as they commemorated the 49th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court rulings that allowed abortion on demand.
Bishop Gerald M. Barbarito and the Respect Life office of Catholic Charities kicked off the local events by praying the rosary Jan. 21, outside the former Palm Beach County courthouse on Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. Deanna Herbst-Hoosac, diocesan respect life director, began by thanking everyone for coming to the prayer service.
“We are here once again, hopefully for the last time, to pray to end abortion,” she said. “We choose this location always because it is at a courthouse that the Supreme Court legalized abortion.”
