Snow forecast prompts cancellation of ‘Standing Together for Life’ Mass and lunch; seminar to move online

January 17, 2024 at 2:41 p.m.


With snow forecasted for Jan. 19, the Diocese has cancelled the second annual “Standing Together for Life” in-person events that were to take place on that day in St. Robert Bellarmine Co-Cathedral, Freehold.

The 11 a.m. Mass and lunch have been cancelled; the seminar will move to a web format for all who were pre-registered.  Information about the webinar, set for Jan. 19 at 12:30, will be sent to all pre-registrants.

“Standing Together for Life” has been offered by the Diocese of Trenton as a local opportunity to gather for prayer seeking legal protection for unborn children and for discussion about the many efforts happening in our area to build a culture of life. Members of the Diocese may wish to connect with some of the many activities from around the nation coinciding with the annual March for Life that will take place Jan. 19 in Washington D.C. They include:

  • Overnight Holy Hours livestreamed from dioceses across the country 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. https://www.usccb.org/prolife/overnight-holy-hours-january

  • Mass on Jan. 19, 8-9 a.m., from the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., will be televised by EWTN and livestreamed on the Basilica’s webpage.

  • Also in Washington, D.C., cable and online coverage of the Concert for Life at 11 a.m., the Rally at noon, and the March, beginning at 1 p.m.

The faithful are also encouraged to attend Mass in their local parishes Jan. 22 (the actual anniversary of the Roe decision), which is observed in dioceses throughout the United States as a particular day of prayer for the full restoration of the legal guarantee of the right to life and of penance for violations to the dignity of the human person committed through acts of abortion.
