Vigil for the Unborn – Wellington

Preborn babies are irreplaceable

Saturday 15 June • 10:00am to 12:00pm
St Anne’s Catholic Church • 22 Emmett Street • Newtown • Wellington

The vigil starts with Holy Mass at 10:00am, followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. During Adoration, there will be a Rosary Procession to the local abortion centre, Te Mahoe, which is located at Wellington Regional Hospital.

The battle between the culture of life and the culture of death is primarily a spiritual one. God is calling us to pray and take action for those at risk and those suffering the after effects of abortion. Peaceful prayer and witness works!
