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.
