Every year on January 22, anti-abortion folks mark the anniversary of the 1972 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. The Catholic Church in the U.S. observes it formally as a Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children. And many activists, Catholic and otherwise, descend on Washington, DC, every year on that day for the annual March for Life.
Here’s my new article for The Priest magazine about one small U.S. parish’s approach the marking the day in a way that’s appealing, appropriate, and educational for kids and their families. Other parishes may wish to take up the idea.
