The 2016 annual Rosary Novena for Life begins on Saturday, March 19, with 8 a.m. Mass at St. Rose of Lima Parish, Parkside and Parker avenues, Buffalo, and will continue on one Saturday each month through November.
Following each service, there will be a peaceful, prayerful procession to a nearby abortion clinic (optional). At the clinic, participants will pray the rosary with the intention that today's society will choose life instead of abortion. The group will return to St. Rose of Lima for closing prayers.
Bishop Richard J. Malone will be the main celebrant at the Mass on August 27.
Other Rosary Novena dates are: April 30, May 21, June 25, July 30, Sept. 24, Oct. 29, and Nov. 19.
The Rosary Novena for Life is sponsored by the Office of Pro-Life Activities. For more information, call the Office of Pro-Life Activities at (716) 847-2205.
