WHEN: Good Friday, April 2, 2021 12:00 noon
WHERE: Planned Parenthood at First and Grape, downtown San Diego
Last year the 15th annual Pro-Life Stations of the Cross downtown San Diego was cancelled on several levels because of COVID. Basically the same limitations to our regular event are going to be in effect for Good Friday 2021.
However, rather than just abandoning the 16th annual Pro-Life Stations of the Cross, we are doing a more simplified version that does not require any special permits or discretionary permission. This year we will be doing the Pro-Life Stations of the Cross in front of Planned Parenthood at First and Grape, downtown San Diego. This falls under first amendment activities and no permits are required. We will not be processing there from St. Joseph Cathedral, and we will not be going to the Federal Building.
You are invited to participate by meeting in front of Planned Parenthood at 12:00 noon. The event should conclude by 1:00. If we get enough attendees, we will line both sides of First Avenue in front of Planned Parenthood.
We will have the stations, signs, prayer books, and walkie-talkies, as usual. While we welcome the participation of any clergy who wishes to join us, the event this year is planned as a pro-life community event of the laity.
As there may be a large number of participants, we ask that you bring a mask as a courtesy to others as social distancing may not possible.
We hope to continue next year with the full procession from St. Joseph Cathedral downtown to the Federal building as we had done for many years. For now, we will do what we can. Please consider this opportunity to stand up for the unborn as we commemorate the passion and death of Our Lord on Good Friday, April 2, 2021.
