Each year, the Office of Pro-Life Activities for the Catholic Diocese of Buffalo sponsors a Rosary Novena for Life. This year, it begins on Saturday, March 25, 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.
Buffalo Bishop Richard J. Malone will be the main celebrant at the Mass on April 29.
Other Rosary Novena dates are: April 29, May 20, June 24, July 29, Aug. 26, Sept. 30, Oct. 28 and Nov. 18.
