There's lots of excitement today as Ottawa prepares for tomorrow's March for Life. I am looking forward to welcoming my brother bishops and to visiting with friends and acquaintances from all over on this important occasion in the defence of life.
Bishop Jean-Louis Plouffe will preside at a Vigil Mass this evening at 7:30PM at St. Theresa's Church (95 Somerset St. West).
Tomorrow morning, May 10 at 10 o'clock there will be concelebrated Masses at the following Catholic Churches (there are services at other houses of worship also):
Mgr Gerald Cyprien Lacroix will preside a Mass in French at Eglise Sacre-Coeur (591 Cumberland, corner of Laurier);
Bishop Nicola De Angelis will preside a Mass in English at St. Patrick's Basilica (281 Nepean Street, corner of Kent);
I will preside a bilingual Mass at Notre Dame Cathedral Basilica (Sussex and St. Patrick Streets).
We will be united in prayer with those marching for life in other capital cities across the land.
