Life’s 5th Quarter prayer service–Aug. 29, 2015

Life’s 5th Quarter

Most Reverend Roger J. Foys, Bishop of Covington,  will celebrate Mass for “Life’s 5th Quarter” at Holy Name Church, 2448 Auburn Ave, Cincinnati at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 29, 2015. Mass will conclude with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. A procession will then form to walk from the church to Planned Parenthood where a Rosary will be prayed. After the Rosary (three mysteries) have been prayed, the procession will return to Holy Name Church where Bishop Foys will offer Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.  All are welcomed and encouraged to participate. Life’s 5th Quarter symbolizes two things: (1) a 5th Saturday occurs once in each quarter during the year, and (2) we are in the 5th quarter to bring awareness to the sanctity of life.  If you have any questions, please contact the Diocese of Covington Pro-Life Office at (859) 392-1500.
