NC Catholics for Life Gather at Washington Shrine
On January 22, 2014, the 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion across the nation, North Carolina Catholics filled the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC, for the annual North Carolina Mass for Life
In his homily, Bishop Burbidge spoke of “the Light of Christ that unites and ignites us especially today as servants of His Gospel of Life.”
Following Mass, the North Carolinians joined pro-life supporters from across the country outdoors in 16-degree temperatures (with a wind chill of zero) in the National March for Life.
