Respect life Sunday is on October 3, 2010. The annual lifechain will be held from 2:00-3:00 at the corner of Market Street and Midlothian Blvd. in Youngstown. The lifechain is a national prayer chain that invites Christians to stand and offer prayer and public witness for an end of abortion. All pro-life persons are welcome. You can read more about the lifechain here http://www.lifechain.net/. This event is sponsored by Mahoning County Right to Life and the Diocese of Youngstown’s office of Pro- Life, Marriage and Family. This year, at 2:00pm Father Greg Maturi, O.P. will be at 4025 Market St (the former abortion mill) to offer a prayer of thanksgiving for its closure. After the prayer, people will go onto the sidewalks to pray until 3pm. After the conclusion of the lifechain, Mahoning Valley Health will again open the building for anyone wishing to have a time of prayer from inside the former abortion mill.
