I know I've posted this picture before, but I have to toot the horn for the Bishop of Harrisburg, a Diocese of which I'm proudly a member. In an age when so many of them seem embarrassed by their Catholicity, Bishop Rhoades walks tall in his. He'll be at the March for Life in D.C. again this year.
What: Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades of the Catholic Diocese of Harrisburg will take part in activities in the diocese as well as in Washington, D.C. to demonstrate support for the sanctity and protection of all human life. Many local people will travel to the National observance via buses from Shamokin, Danville, Middletown, Hershey, Lancaster, York, Carlisle, New Cumberland, Waynesboro and other local areas. Schedule: Sunday, January 20, 2008 - Millersville, PA 11:30 a.m. Diocesan Pro-Life Mass, Saint Philip the Apostle Church, 2111 Millersville Pike, Lancaster, PA 17603. A vase of 35 flowers symbolizing the years since the Roe v. Wade decision will be on display.
Monday, January 21 - Washington, D.C. 7:00 p.m. Bishop Rhoades will concelebrate at the Vigil Mass for Life at the Basilica of the National Shrine, 400 Michigan Avenue NE, Washington, DC.
