Holy Week Pro-Life Vigils in SE Pennsylvania and Across the USA

Over the years, pro-life advocates have held prayer vigils at local abortion facilities every year during Holy Week. It's a time of prayer and public witness. A time to remind the members of our communities of the horror taking place inside these killing centers while they go about their daily routines. It's a time when we remember the ultimate sacrifice that Our Lord made for all of us, born and preborn.

Below is a list of some of the locations in the Southeast PA area that will have prayer vigils during Holy Week. Please commit to spending one hour of your time at one of these vigils or at one of the many that will take place throughout the country.
