September 10th is the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children. I will be the speaker at the Hawthorne, New York event at Gate of Heaven Cemetery. I hope to see you there! There are many events taking place on the Day of Remembrance, click here to find one near you.
An Annual Event—and More
The first National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children was held in September 2013 on the 25th anniversary of the solemn burial of the earthly remains of some 1,500 abortion victims in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Over 100 memorial services were held across the United States, and it was clear this should become an annual event.
Dear Pro-Life Friend,
I’m writing to invite you to join me for an important pro-life prayer service taking place in Hawthorne, New York on Saturday, September 10.
On that day, pro-life Americans will honor the memory of the more than 50 million unborn victims of abortion during the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children.
Solemn prayer services will be held simultaneously at gravesites around the country where abortion victims have been buried, as well as at many other memorial sites dedicated in their honor.
I hope that you will be able to join me for the memorial service taking place in our community as part of the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children:
Event: Memorial Service for Victims of Abortion
When: Saturday, September 10 at 11:00 a.m.
Location: Gate of Heaven Cemetery
Address: 10 West Stevens Avenue, Hawthorne, NY 10532
This solemn memorial service will last approximately one hour.
Please come out for this important pro-life event, prayerfully witnessing to the humanity of our unborn brothers and sisters, together with our fellow pro-lifers throughout the country.
In the Sermon on the Mount, our Lord promised us: “Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
On September 10, we seek that divine comfort as we mourn for the victims of abortion. Let us never forget their precious lives as we continue to work and pray for an end to abortion.
