The Feast of the Holy Innocents is observed each December 28th to remember the children slaughtered by King Herod and his henchmen.
According to the Gospel of Matthew, Herod ordered the execution of all young male children in the "Vicinity of Bethlehem," so as to avoid the loss of his throne to a newborn King of the Jews whose birth had been announced to him by the Magi. (Wikipedia)
This feast day holds a particular significance to the pro-life movement as we also remember all the innocent pre-born babies killed each and every day through the terrible sin of abortion.
In the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, PA, a Mass is celebrated each year on this date to honor the memory of those children who have been killed these past 40 years though abortion.
The Mass and memorial service for the Feast of the Holy Innocents, will be held in Bucks County at St. Cyril of Jerusalem Church, located at 1410 Almshouse Road in Jamison, Pa. at 7:00 pm.All are invited to attend and refreshments will be served following the Mass.
