On a bleak Friday afternoon nearly 2,000 years ago, our savior Jesus Christ was crucified at Golgotha, “the place of the skull.”
Today, we have our own Golgotha: the abortion clinic, where His image is violently destroyed, again and again, by abortion.
So it is fitting that we pray in mourning for these victims and all those harmed by abortion. On Good Friday, pro-lifers across the country will participate in the “Way for the Cross for Victims of Abortion,” and you’re invited to join them.
Check out the list below to find a Good Friday vigil near you. Or, if you don’t find a local vigil, consider hosting your own Way of the Cross with help from the Pro-Life Action League.
