March for Life 2013 with Bishop Burbidge and St. Mark's Youth GroupThe two February Carolina Catholic shows report from the North Carolina Mass for Life and from the March for Life. This year marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the United States Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy. Bishops Burbidge and Jugis concelebrated the annual North Carolina Mass for Life at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and then both dioceses, led by our Bishops and priests, joind the march in progress to pray and give witness to the sanctity of the life of the unborn.

The USCCB has recommended all parishes participate in a "Call to Prayer for Life, Marriage and Religious Liberty," made up of five parts:

  • a Eucharistic Holy Hour for this intention each month in your parish;
  • a daily family Rosary for this intention;
  • special Prayers of the Faithful at all Masses, Sundays and weekdays;
  • fasting and abstinence on Fridays; and
  • a second observance of a Fortnight for Freedom in June and July this year. Please work with your pastors to implement this national Call to Prayer in your parishes.
