Bishop Dewane to Lead Pro-Life Walk and Prayers Monday

Those who could not get to Washington, D.C., for the March for Life -- and even those who did go -- can march with Bishop Frank Dewane Monday in Naples to a prayer vigil outside Planned Parenthood in Naples.

Bishop Dewane will celebrate Mass at 8 a.m. at St. William's Church on Seagate Rd. in Naples. People will then assemble at Creech Rd. and US 41 at 9 a.m. and begin a walk led by Bishop Dewane along Creech Rd. for four-tenths of a mile to the Planned Parenthood building. Shuttle buses will be provided for those who prefer not to walk.

The bishop will lead the rosary outside Planned Parenthood, marchers will return to the parking lots and there will be Benediction following at St. William's Church.

Ave Maria residents who want to carpool should get in touch with Elaine Doerrfeld, head of the parish Respect Life Committee, to check on arrangements. She can be reached at 239-354-3786.

Planned Parenthood began performing abortions at its Naples office last fall. There are regular protests at the clinic on Mondays, the day that abortions are performed there.
