Pro-Life Demonstration This Weekend At Notre Dame

This weekend is the Notre Dame commencement and President Obama's visit. More importantly, Notre Dame Response is organizing a big pro-life demonstration which is open to everyone. If you're able, please attend! It would be great to get a crowd similar to the Washington DC March for Life.

Here is the schedule.

9:30 p.m.: Adoration Begins In On-Campus Chapel
Location: Alumni Hall Chapel
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will take place throughout the night in an on-campus chapel. Bishop D’Arcy of South Bend will be in attendance at the beginning of this vigil.

10:45 a.m.: Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament
Location: Alumni Hall Chapel
Eucharistic Adoration will come to an end with Benediction led by a Holy Cross priest.

11:15 a.m. : Sunday Mass
Location: South Quad (near the Rockne Memorial)
An outdoor Mass will be celebrated on-campus for all those who have traveled to Notre Dame for this weekend to stand alongside the University’s students. All priests, Bishops, and Cardinals who travel to Notre Dame for this weekend are invited to concelebrate this Mass.

12:30 p.m.: Rally On The Quad
Location: South Quad (near the Rockne Memorial)
Following Sunday Mass, a rally affirming the uniquely Catholic and pro-life foundation of Notre Dame will take place on South Quad. This rally will feature speakers with strong connections to the University who embrace Notre Dame’s Catholic identity and hold it to a higher standard of conduct that demands defending the fundamental human right to life.

2:00 p.m.: Class Of 2009 Vigil For Life
Location: Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes
At the conclusion of the Rally, those supporters in attendance will be urged to join seniors who have decided not to attend graduation at a prayer vigil on campus. Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, will be leading a Scriptural Rosary during this prayer vigil.

3:45 pm : Final Blessing And Departure of Travelers

6:00 p.m.: Post-Commencement Honor Ceremony and Party
Location: State Theatre in downtown South Bend
NDaffirmLife.org will host a post-commencement party at the State Theatre in downtown South Bend from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., to recognize the courageous students who stood for life and give them a send-off of support as they enter a new phase of their lives. Everyone is welcome to attend this family-friendly gathering.
