MEMORIAL FOR THE UNBORN
The first principal of Catholic Social Teaching
is life and dignity of the human person. The
Catholic church proclaims that human life is
sacred and that the dignity of the human person is
the foundation of a moral vision for society. This belief is the
foundation of all the principles of our social teaching.
We believe that every person is precious, that people are
more important than things and that the measure of every
institution is whether it threatens or enhances the life and dignity
of the human person.
The Memorial to the Unborn to the right of the Grotto was
dedicated in 1995 and was gifted to the Parish by the Fourth
Degree Knights of Columbus. Since then, on the Sunday closest
to January 22, the Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus stand
vigil at the Memorial for the Unborn all morning and pray the
rosary after the 10:30a.m. Mass when many of our brothers and
sisters join in Washington, DC for the Right to Life March. This
March and our Memorial commemorates the now 59,000,000
children aborted since 1973 and commemorates all unborn
children. Recently a young couple invited one of our priests to
pray with them at the Memorial to the Unborn for their
miscarried baby.
On Sunday, January 21, you are invited to pray the
rosary at the Memorial for the Unborn after the 10:30a.m.
Mass for a greater respect for the dignity and life of the human
person and are invited to say a prayer at the Memorial for the
Unborn as the Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus stand vigil
during the morning.
