On January 22, 1973 our Supreme Court issued a decision that made abortion legal in our country. Because of that decision, over 1 million unborn children lose their lives to abortion each year. Please join Archbishop Joseph Kurtz and representatives from around the archdiocese at St. Martin of Tours on Sunday, January 18 at 3:00pm to celebrate the annual respect life memorial Mass. This year 42 white roses will be displayed to mark each year since the Roe v. Wade decision.
Please join us at the Golden Arrow following Mass to enjoy light refreshments and shop for purses, tote bags, lunch boxes, wallets and jewelry. Unique and designer handbags available and all money raised is used to support the work of the Golden Arrow.
