Walk for Life and Mass of Reparation

On Saturday 8 September 2012, the feast of the Birthday of Our Lady, over a thousand Catholics from the Archdiocese took part in a walk for Life.

The morning began with a Holy Hour before the Blessed Sacrament in Holy Trinity Church.

From Holy Trinity we walked singing hymns, holding placards, and praying the rosary to St Anthony’s Church where the Eucharist was celebrated by Bishop Barry Wood OMI and a number of priests. In his homily the Bishop compared the abortion genocide to the Holocaust, Bosnian and Rwandan genocides.  The Church and the hall were full to capacity and we were helped by Marshalls and the Metro Police.
