Photostory of the March 2008 Helpers Prayer Vigil

It was chilly, but it was a nice day on March 29th. It started at 7:30 with Mass at St. Jude on 7 Mile in Detroit, celebrated by Bishop John M. Quinn - an auxiliary bishop of Detroit. It was followed by a Rosary procession from St. Veronica's near two clinics on 8 Mile - one in East Pointe and the other in Detroit. We were fortunate to have escorts from both city police departments due to the heavy traffic on 8 mile and the dangers of crossing as we do. All vigils are peaceful and uneventful in terms of problems.

Some of our Protestant brothers and sisters were out there as well, with the Bound4Life movement. You may have recognized the characteristic red tape on their mouths with the word "LIFE" written on it. It is not a protest, but a silent prayer - one they call the silent seige. This first pic is taken from their website since the tape is not too visible in my pics.

Founder of Helpers, Msgr Reilly, on Gloria TV

This is the founder of the Helpers of God's Precious Infants, Msgr Phillip Reilly. In it, he explains how the prayer vigils are done. You will see it is not confrontational, full of love and compassion.

Please rank the video by clicking the stars. I gave it a 5-star rating, which I believe it deserves. These kinds of home video are not easy to make if you've tried it. It takes many hours. I am very grateful to Msgr Reilly for enabling this video to be made.

See yesterday's post for details of the prayer vigil to take place on March 29th, 2008.

What better way to spend the Saturday morning before Divine Mercy Sunday than praying for the unborn, for those struggling the confusion that comes along with an unplanned pregnancy?

Bishop Quinn will lead us On March 29th, starting with Holy Mass at 7:30am at St. Jude Church in on 15889 E. Seven Mile in Detroit. Then, you can join many families in a long procession praying the entire Rosary along the way to the two clinics a few blocks away from St. Veronica's in Eastpointe. It is entirely non-confrontational and compassionate.
