COLORADO SPRINGS. Among the many events that have been canceled or modified this year due to C0VID-19 restrictions, the annual Rocky Mountain March for Life that usually occurs in January in recognition of the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, has been revamped as well.
Because of gathering restrictions, we unfortunately are not able to have the usual march from Planned Parenthood and lunch gathering this year, but the St. Mary’s High School Students for Life and the Diocese of Colorado Springs Respect Life Apostolate are still organizing the annual Rocky Mountain Mass for Life at Corpus Christi Catholic Church on Jan. 18, and we invite all to join us!
There will be eucharistic adoration and a Divine Mercy Chaplet at 11 a.m., followed by Mass at noon with Bishop Michael Sheridan. To register to attend the Mass, please visit the Corpus Christi website at https://corpuschristicos.org/church/.
A new five-day Rocky Mountain Adoration for Life event has been added as well, commencing at various churches in the diocese immediately following the Jan. 18 Mass. The week concludes with a Mass for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children, celebrated by Bishop Sheridan at St. Mary’s Cathedral on Jan. 22 at 12:10 p.m. To register to attend this Mass, please visit the cathedral website at www.stmaryscathedral.org.
For details on the locations, dates, and times of eucharistic adoration, see the ad on Page 6 of this issue of the Herald or view the event flyer and additional information posted at https://www.diocs.org/Respect-Life.
Civil rights begin in the womb, so we encourage all to join us on Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the week following as we pray for the first and most fundamental of human rights — the right to life!
