Prayer Vigil for Aborted Children to be Held on Sept. 12 at Resurrection Cemetery in Romeoville

On Saturday, September 12, 2015, Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life and the Pro-Life Action League will co-sponsor the third annual National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, calling on pro-life Americans to honor the gravesites of our aborted brothers and sisters.

Solemn prayer vigils will be conducted at these gravesites, of which there are 47 across the United States, as well as at dozens of other sites dedicated in memory of aborted children.

In our diocese, the remembrance will take place on Sept. 12 at Resurrection Cemetery, in Romeoville, at 1 p.m. Guests include Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Siegel and Father Thomas Loya, the pastor at Annunciation Byzantine Catholic Church, Homer Glen. The day of remembrance will honor the memory of the more than 50 million unborn victims of abortion with a solemn prayer service. For more information, go to
