Local Catholics to take part in Mass for the Unborn

Members of St. George Catholic Church will be among those taking part in the Mass for the Unborn on Wednesday.

The Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta will hold the Mass on Wednesday at 10 a.m. at the Cathedral of Christ the King in Atlanta.

Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory will be the main celebrant for the Mass. A Rosary for Life will be prayed for protection of the unborn and their mothers beginning at 9:30 a.m.

Hundreds have registered to hold 'Stand for Life' signs along Peachtree Road from the Cathedral of Christ the King to Lenox Square to commemorate the 1973 Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion in the US. Participants will begin to line up after Mass continuing from noon–12:30 p.m.

'While we continue to mourn the tragedy of legal abortion in our nation, we look forward to inaugurating the Stand for Life program and reaching more people with the message of life,' said Mary Boyert, Respect Life director for the archdiocese.

More than 300 Catholics from Atlanta plan to travel to Washington, D.C. for the March for Life on Wednesday at the U.S. Supreme Court Building.

According to National Right to Life, the total number of babies aborted in the US is 56,622,169 since 1973.

Members of St. George Catholic Parish and other pro-life witnesses may board a bus leaving the parish parking lot at 8 a.m. for transportation to the cathedral and back. For information, call the parish office at 770-251-5353.
