This Saturday, 8 September, is the Feast of the Birthday of Our Lady.  It’s therefore a most appropriate day, as we honour her, to pray that all children in the womb will be able to celebrate their birthday, and to ask our Blessed Mother to intercede for us as we pray for an end to abortion.

There will be a Mass, followed by a Rosary Procession to the abortuary, and then Benediction, at Saint Patrick’s Basilica, Ottawa.  The details are as follows:
