Bishop Soto to lead rosary procession to Sacramento abortion clinic

.- Bishop of Sacramento Jaime Soto will lead a rosary procession to a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Sacramento this coming Saturday to pray for an end to an abortion and for “the conversion of our nation.”

An announcement on the diocesan website said the bishop will join the apostolate Helpers of God’s Precious Infants in a prayer procession that will include Bishop Soto leading Benediction and the Rosary.

In a January 12 letter, Bishop Soto extended his episcopal endorsement to Helpers of God’s Precious Infants, describing them as “an autonomous and independent group of Catholics committed to promoting the moral teachings of the Catholic Church regarding the grave moral evil of abortion and the sacred dignity of human life.”

He added that he was “most impressed” with the group’s outreach to expectant mothers and its commitment to maintaining a “respectful and loving” presence outside abortion centers. Their efforts were an “important component” of the promotion of a “culture of life,” Bishop Soto wrote.

More information on the group and the procession is available at www.sacramentohelpers.org.
