“Summer Witness and Prayer,” the second annual pro-life summit of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, featured Archbishop Charles Chaput as celebrant for Mass on the morning of July 20 at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul, Philadelphia.
The day began with prayer outside Philadelphia Women’s Center on Appletree St. Following Mass, participants met at the Archdiocesan Pastoral Center to hear a series of talks by speakers including Ted Meehan on the legal and judicial aspects of the HHS mandate; John DiCamillo on the ethical ramifications of the mandate for employers; and Dr. Bill Williams on the effects of abortion upon women.
The day-long conference for Catholics and others who are active locally in the pro-life movement was sponsored by the archdiocesan Office for Life and Family.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
