Father John Connell, vicar general, will celebrate the annual Mass for Life Sunday, Jan.19 at noon in the Wally Allen Ballroom at the Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock. This event, along with the Hearts for Life Conference, Weekend for Life and Eucharistic Procession for Life, are being held to mark the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions that legalized abortion in the United States in 1973. Everyone is welcome. In preparation for the Mass for Life, parishes are invited to offer a Vigil for Life with adoration of the Blessed Sacrament beginning Saturday evening, Jan. 18 and continuing through Sunday morning, Jan. 19. Before the Mass, everyone is invited to come together for a Eucharistic Procession for Life beginning at 10 a.m. It will process from the DoubleTree Hotel through Riverfront Park to the Statehouse Convention Center.
