Archbishop Nelson Pérez will celebrate a 10 a.m. “Mass of solidarity” in Philadelphia on Friday, Jan. 29, the day of the now-virtual national March for Life in Washington, at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul.
Traditionally, groups of pilgrims to the national march attend Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington.
The local liturgy will serve as a way of continuing that practice, said Steven Bozza, director of the archdiocesan Office for Life and Family, which is sponsoring the Mass.
Participants are asked to wear a mask and practice social distancing.
Limited parking is available at Gateway Parking Garage, with its entrance on Spring and 16th streets, and the Sheraton Hotel Parking Garage on 16th and 17th streets. Street parking is also available.
Visit the website of the Office for Life and Family at PhillyCatholicLife.org for more details.
