As part of a prayer vigil for life, Bishop of Sacramento Jaime Soto will celebrate a Mass and benediction and lead a pro-life apostolate’s Rosary procession to a nearby abortion center in August.
The prayer vigil is organized by the Sacramento Helpers of God’s Precious Infants. It will begin on Saturday, August 14 at 8 a.m. at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Sacramento.
Bishop Soto recorded two video messages about the event in English and Spanish, respectively. In a video posted at the Diocese of Sacramento’s website, he invited people to participate “in support of protecting the most innocent among us.”
“Please make that commitment to join many of your brothers and sisters in the faith in this wonderful expression of prayer and solidarity where we, in a very humble way, announce the good news of the Gospel of Life to our brothers and sisters … we become instruments, messengers, of that gospel which gives life and help to all,” the bishop said.
