The Requiem Mass celebrated by Bishop Sherrington and Holy Hour commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the 1967 Abortion Act, at Westminster Cathedral in London, England on October 27, 2017.

From the Bishops’ statement:

“As Catholics, we urge that, throughout our countries, prayer and fasting be used for the protection of human life, especially for life within the womb, for all expectant mothers, for fathers and families. We ask the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe and St Raymund Nonnatus, the patron saint of childbirth, midwives, children, pregnant women.”
