Archbishop Vigneron to lead September 21, 2013 Vigil out of Assumption Grotto




SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21: Helpers of God's Precious Infants Vigil

Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron will be leading the September prayer vigil for the Helpers of God's Precious Infants.  It begins with Mass at 7:30 AM at Assumption Grotto.  Participants then drive about 2 miles down Gratiot into a subdivision and park at St. Veronica's where a Rosary procession works it's way to the 8 Mile boulevard.  There the Rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet are prayed in front of two abortion mills, about a block apart on either side of 8 Mile.  They then will process back to St. Veronica's then, those who have time, go back to Assumption Grotto for Benediction with the Blessed Sacrament and a brief meeting with refreshments.

On September 11, 2010, more than 500 turned out for the vigil when it was held outside of a west side abortion mill.  See my photo story here.
