Good Friday Pro-Life Stations of the Cross, downtown San Diego, April 6, 2012
News from the Trenches
Participants gathered near St. Joseph’s Cathedral, then walked in procession about five blocks to Horton Plaza, where they lined up to pray the Stations of the Cross and to give a public witness against abortion.
The procession was led by 14 members of the Knights of Columbus Color Corps, five altar boys, and two priests, trailed by a line of people three blocks long. People carried signs saying, “Stop killing the innocent unborn,” “Abortion kills children,” and “Jesus heals and forgives.”
It was not a typical gathering of people with signs. It was a prayerful event, and a sight that caught the attention of cars passing by, as hundreds of people genuflected in unison at the beginning of each station, led by Fr. Anthony Saroki, pastor of Ascension Catholic Church and Director of Priestly Vocations for the Diocese of San Diego.
The annual Pro-Life Stations of the Cross is organized by Helpers of God’s Precious Infants, San Diego, whose primary mission is sidewalk counseling and prayer vigils in front of abortion centers. It is the largest of several public witness events organized by Helpers to encourage more people to stand up for the protection of the unborn.
