The Catholic Bishops of Alberta have released a letter of endorsement for the March for Life, encouraging all to attend on May 11th.
"As Catholics we know that every human life, from fertilization to natural death, is a precious gift. We are committed to protecting everyone, especially the most vulnerable. We are committed to offering mercy, comfort and love to those who suffer, not murder (cf. Ex 20:13; Mt 19:18).
"We are also called to proclaim the Gospel message of life and love, through word and witness, to the world. One way to do this is by joining the Bishops of Alberta at the annual March for Life on Thursday, May 11. We invite you to pray with us at the Mass for Life at 10 a.m. at St. Joseph Basilica in Edmonton. Following the celebration of the Eucharist, we will gather at 12 noon at Sir Winston Churchill Square, and walk together to the Alberta Legislature and back. Advocates for life will speak at both locations. A special invitation is extended to our Catholic teachers and students."
