Imagine Christianity in which all believers, regardless of denomination, worshipped, prayed and shared fellowship as one body.
The 44th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision legalizing abortion is being observed in January around the diocese and with a pilgrimage to Washington. This year’s events have been scheduled around the inauguration on Jan. 20 in Washington.
“I wish to restate as firmly as I can that abortion is a grave sin, since it puts an end to an innocent life. In the same way, however, I can and must state that there is no sin that God’s mercy cannot reach and wipe away when it finds a repentant heart seeking to be reconciled with the Father.”
