YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO – The Most Reverend David J. Bonnar, Bishop of Youngstown, will celebrate a diocesan Mass for Life on Sunday, January 14, 2024 at 4:00 p.m. at St. Columba Cathedral, 154 West Wood Street, Youngstown. All are invited to pray for a greater respect for human life at every stage and in all circumstances.

At the Mass, expectant mothers, fathers and their families will be invited to receive a blessing for their preborn babies. The “Blessing of a Child in the Womb” was created to encourage prayer and recognition of the precious gift of the child in the womb, and to foster respect for human life within society. In addition, there will be a “Blessing of Pilgrims” who attend the National March for Life which will take place on Friday, January 19 in Washington, D.C.

The Mass for Life will be followed by a reception including displays of information on respect for life and Walking with Moms in Need. All are welcome to attend. No reservations are necessary. Donations are accepted and appreciated.
