Tucson March for life
January 19, 2019
St. Augustine Cathedral, Tucson, Arizona
The Tucson March for Life will begin with Mass celebrated by Bishop Kicanas at St. Augustine Cathedral, 192 South Stone Avenue, from 9:00 am - March 10:30 am. At 10:30 a.m. the March begins from St. Augustine Cathedral and ends at Holy Hope Cemetery, where a memorial service and Rose Ceremony will be held 3535 North Oracle Road.
Our Lady of Grace Parish will be traveling to Tucson to join the Annual Tucson March for Life. If you are interested in attending please contact the parish office to reserve a seat on the bus.
The Tucson March For Life has been an annual testimony to life since 1993 and the memorial of the anniversary of the deadly Roe v. Wade US Supreme Court decision, legalizing abortion. A prayerful witness to the sanctity of human life, the March remains dignified and non-provocative in its approach; it is a public event to show the Tucson community our commitment to the protection of all human life, especially women and their preborn children. Police Escort will be on site all along the route for traffic control and to maintain a peaceful event. All are welcome to participate in a solemn, non-aggressive and prayerful manner.
Spiritual Adoption Program
Blanketing unborn babies with prayer
What is the Spiritual Adoption Program?
It is very simple. Participants beginning this month commit to praying each day:
- for a child in the womb
- for the child's mother to receive the care and encouragement that she deserves
- for the child's father that he will accept the joy of supporting the mother and child
- for our community to celebrate life
At the end of the nine months, the parish will celebrate the birth of our spiritually adopted children with a baby shower.
¿Qué es el Programa de Adopción Espiritual?
Es algo muy sencillo. Empezando este mes usted puede comprometerser a orar diariamente:
- por un niño en el vientre
- para que la madre de ese nifio reciba el cuidado y el apoyo que se merece
- para que el padre de ese el niñio acepte la alegría de apoyar a la madre y al niño
- para que nuestra comunidad celebre la vida
Al final de los nueve meses, la parroquia celebrará el nacimiento de nuestros niños adoptivos espirituales con una fiesta.
