Helpers of God's Precious Infants Rosary Processions

The Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese of Baltimore has joined numerous other cities in leading peaceful, prayerful processions to abortion facilities. These processions fill the streets with prayer and singing and bring hope to places of great suffering.

  • First, we begin with a Respect Life Mass, followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
  • Next, while those unable to participate in the procession remain in prayer with Christ in the church, we process through the streets (sometimes partially in cars if necessary) praying the Rosary and singing hymns. We carry only our rosaries, a banner of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and a sign identifying our mission.
  • When we arrive at the abortion facility, we continue in prayer and kneel for a moment of silence.
  • Finally, we return to the Church for Benediction.

We Pray for:

  • Women and their babies who are in danger of abortion
  • Healing of men and women who carry the pain of a past abortion
  • Workers at abortion clinics, and local, state and national leaders who misguidedly support abortion.
  • Holy Hour for Life Booklet prepared by the Archdiocese of Baltimore Respect Life Office.
