Good Friday Prayer Vigil -- West Seattle -- April 14, 2006

Fr. Bloom of Holy Family Parish in the White Center neighborhood of West Seattle invites you to a Good Friday Prayer Vigil.

I am hoping to organize a massive prayer vigil at White Center’s Planned Parenthood. The basic plan is this: gather at Holy Family “Ailbe House” (former convent, 9641 20th Ave SW, Seattle, Wa) at 7 a.m. At 7:15 walk to Planned Parenthood praying the rosary (it is about a ten block walk during which a complete rosary is said). At Planned Parenthood pray the Luminous and Sorrowful Mysteries, using the attached format, followed by the Chaplet of Divine Mercy (PP employees and clients start arriving at this time.)

On the way back to Holy Family Church we will pray the Glorious Mysteries. The concluding time will be about 8:30. I would like to have as big a group as possible. We are fighting a real spiritual battle here in White Center – and need all the support we can get. I have attached the original letter sent to the local Planned Parenthood director when we started these vigils the summer before last. It explains the issues and how we have approached these prayer vigils.

Mary - although I cannot travel to Seattle at this time to pray at the abortion mill, I will be in prayer for all...

Our parish, Our Lady Star of the Sea, has held a prayer vigil at the East Bremerton abortion mill for several years now - I think it is on Holy Thursday. For more information, for those on this side of the water, call 479 3777 - the office for OLSS.

blessings -

I can't be there, but I'll be interested to know how the PP people respond to this. The only thing they hate worse than violent protesters is polite, gentle ones.

Thanks for your prayers.

You got that right Joel!

I hope to post a report after the event. Stay tuned.
