Praying for Mercy

20090103-DSC_7062Inspired by God’s gracious gift of Divine Mercy, we will gather in May for a pro-life Mass to pray for victims of violence and an end to the death penalty.  Our focus will be praying for all those on death row, especially those nearing execution, as well as those who have suffered from their violent actions.  Believing in the inherent dignity of the human person, and the sanctity of human life, we pray for an end to direct attacks on any human life, from conception to natural death. We pray for an end to violence in our homes, on our streets, on the battlefields, and in our prisons. Join us for Mass on Saturday, May 3rd at 9 a.m. at St. Patrick Church (406 E. Pinhook Road, Lafayette, LA).  More info:  Diocesan Pro-life  office at 337-261-5607, or St. Patrick at 337-237-0988.
