Day of intercession for the defeat of the Victorian Abortion legislation

Archbishop Hart has called for this Sunday to be observed as a day of intercession in the Melbourne Archdiocese to pray for the defeat of the Bill. Cardinal Pell has also committed the Sydney archdiocese to join in prayer. The Bill was passed in the Victorian Lower House a couple of weeks ago and debate is scheduled to resume in the Victorian upper house on October 7.

A number of communities are holding special prayers for this intention, In particular:

  • Melbourne: Holy Hour after 11am Mass at 12.15pm.
  • Canberra: prayers, Exposition and Benediction after Sunday (low) Mass - will probably begin about 12.30 pm;
  • Toowoomba: 12:15pm - 1:15pm, Sacred Heart Church, Cnr North and Tor Streets

If there are any others, please let me know and I will add them to the list.
