Pray for the end of abortion

The faithful are invited to join Bishop Gerald M. Barbarito in praying for an end to abortion and all attacks on human life during events Friday and Saturday, Jan. 20-21, in West Palm Beach.

The bishop is set to reflect on all 20 mysteries of the rosary Jan. 20 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. outside the historic Palm Beach County Courthouse, 300 N. Dixie Highway. Students from Cardinal Newman High School will help lead the prayers.

Those interested in participating are being directed to park their vehicles at metered street spaces or in parking lots/garages nearby, on Fourth, Third or First streets.

On Saturday, Jan. 21, Bishop Barbarito will celebrate a 10 a.m. Mass for the unborn at Mary Immaculate Church, 390 S. Sequoia Drive.

After the liturgy, he will lead a Eucharistic procession starting at Birthline/Lifeline’s Miracle House, 3115 45th St., to the nearby abortion facility.
