Archdiocesan Catholics pray for life

In conjunction with the USCCB Pro-life Secretariat, Bishop Mark Bartosic, along with other bishops and priests from around the Archdiocese of Chicago, led a holy hour for life for 12 hours at the St. John Paul II Newman Center Chapel at the University of Illinois at Chicago, 700 S. Morgan St., on Jan. 19-20 from 7 p.m.-7 a.m. This national prayer event joined the nation in solidarity for the hope of changing hearts and minds to build a culture of life and led up to the morning of the National March for Life.
