After a beautiful 6am Mass celebrated by Fr Matthew Habron in Hinsley Hall’s Chapel of the Holy Family, Leeds People for Life and pro-life supporters from across the Diocese set off for London on Saturday 6 September to join the March for Life UK.
One parishioner from St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross Parish in Shipley said, ‘We were delighted to be joined by some of the Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal, who led us in prayer on the journey. What a wonderful day it was, with an estimated 5,000 pro-lifers walking through the streets of London near Parliament, witnessing to Life. It was really inspiring to see so many families and students on the March!’
Visit the March for Life UK 2021 Facebook page for photographs of the event and footage of the keynote speakers, including the Bishop of Lancaster who said, ‘We abolished the death penalty for the guilty; why do we have it for the innocent?’
Catholics can continue witnessing to life by supporting the Forty Days for Life campaign which runs until 31 October – and you can join Leeds People for Life on the National Pro-Life Pilgrimage to Walsingham on Saturday 23 October 2021.
