"Only with prayer — prayer that storms the heavens for justice and mercy, prayer that cleanses our hearts and our souls — will the culture of death that surrounds us today be replaced with a culture of life." — Pastoral Plan for Pro-Life Activities: A Campaign in Support of Life, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops

Bishop Anthony B. Taylor will lead the Stations of the Cross at 11 a.m. on Friday, March 15 as part of 40 Days for Life in Little Rock. All are invited to join him in prayer across the street from Little Rock Family Planning Services, the abortion facility located at #4 Office Park Drive. For more information, contact Catherine Phillips, diocesan respect life director, at (501) 664-0340, ext. 326.
