This Week at St. Edward:


JANUARY 22, 2016
On Friday, January 22nd in Washington D.C., the annual March for Life will take place on the 43rd anniversary of the Supreme Court’s infamous Roe v. Wade decision. Those in attendance will petition Congress and our President to protect the right of every born and pre-born human being. We ask everyone to help celebrate life through prayer, liturgy, and self-education. Life is sacred, so each of us has the responsibility to see that all human life is given respect and dignity. We have the obligation to support life through our prayer, sacrifice and knowledge.
