Assumption Grotto Pro-Life Vigil

Diane at Te Deum Laudamus! reports on a pro-life prayer vigil organised by the Helpers of God's Precious Infants the day after our Maidstone vigil. The vigil was led by Mgr Jeffrey M. Montforton, the Rector of the Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit. there was 7.30am Mass at Assumption Grotto, then a Rosary procession from St Veronica's Church with a procession to say the Rosary opposite two abortion clinics. Afterwards there was Benediction back at Assumption Grotto and a talk in the hall by Dan Goodnow, president of HGPI in Michigan.

The photo above shows part of the Rosary Procession in the icy rain. Diane reports that there were 200 people there. Here in England, we can only dream of that kind of attendance at our pro-life vigils. But as I said to her, our relatively small numbers help us to feel that we are at calvary, as Mgr O'Reilly, founder of HGPI would say.
