Bishop Baker to celebrate
March For Life Rally, Jan. 13
Bishop Robert J. Baker will celebrate the annual Respect Life Mass on Saturday, Jan. 13, at St. Stephen the Martyr Chapel at 9 a.m. and the Birmingham March for Life at 10:45 at Brother Bryan Park, 22nd St. and 10th Ave. South. These offer the perfect opportunities for the church in the Diocese of Birmingham to respond to Pope Francis’ call to respect the face of Jesus from conception to death.
The Holy Father tells us that, “Every child who, rather than being born, is condemned unjustly to being aborted, bears the face of Jesus Christ, bears the face of the Lord…”, Jim Pinto, director of the march stated. “I encourage all of you to participate and spread the word about the Respect Life Mass celebrated by Bishop Baker, and to gather as many as possible to attend the Birmingham March for Life.
“Now is the time to stand up publicly and declare our solidarity with every human being and in particular the vulnerable pre-born, who bears the face of Jesus Christ,” he said.
