Rallies for Life

January 22 marks the 43rd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion.  In the wake of this decision, legal abortion in our nation has claimed the lives of more than 57 million unborn children and has hurt countless women and men.  To commemorate this anniversary, St. Joseph's Respect Life ministry will be participating in this year's Texas Rally for Life on Saturday, January 23, at the Capitol in Austin. The Rally will feature pro-life speakers and leaders from across the state.  On Sunday, January 24, parishioners may also participate in A Day of Prayer for the Unborn with a commemoration Mass & rally in San Antonio.  A procession will begin in Main Plaza at 11:00 followed by Mass at San Fernando Cathedral at noon celebrated by the Most Reverend Gustavo Garcia-Siller.  A rally will follow at 1:00, again in Main Plaza. If you are interested in either event and would like more information, please contact, Kim Barton at 210-878-9519 or wkap@gvtc.com.
