All are invited to the Pro-Life Summit and Mass set for Saturday, Jan. 16, with the theme of adoption.
Mass will be celebrated at 9 a.m. in the chapel of the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul. Afterward participants will walk next door to the Archdiocesan Pastoral Center for talks and discussion at 10 a.m.
A prayerful witness for life will also be held at the Planned Parenthood clinic at 12th and Locust streets in Philadelphia preceding Mass from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m.
The semi-annual event is presented by the organization Adoption is a Loving Option, and sponsored by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Office for Life and Family, and the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia.
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.
