In response to the string of undercover Planned Parenthood exposé videos, C-PLAN of Charlotte, a new group of Catholic pro-life workers and ministry leaders, organized a Rosary Rally at the local Planned Parenthood on Albemarle Rd. from 4pm-6pm on August 14th, the feast day of the patron saint of the pro-life movement, St. Maximilian Kolbe.
It was such a huge success, and shows what parish Respect Life coordinators can do when we work together. Nearly 400 people, including 6 priests and a handful of deacons and seminarians, joined us in prayer.
After the event, Fr. Roux celebrated a special pro-life Vigil Mass for the Feast of the Assumption at the Cathedral for rally participants, including a beautiful candlelight procession.
You can read the Rosary Rally coverage at the Catholic News Herald and watch the video:
The Rosary Rally was also picked up by the local news channels which you can find below.
On behalf of the Catholic Pro-Life Action Network (C-PLAN), we wanted to thank the 360+ faithful who turned our for our Rosary Rally. It shows what we can accomplish when all the Catholic parishes coordinate their pro-life activities, which is the mission of our new group. To learn more about C-PLAN sign up for our newsletter.
St. Maxmillian Kolbe pray for us!
