New Zealand pro-life rosary crusade

WelCom December 2018:

In response to the NZ government’s proposed reform of abortion and end-of-life laws, a group of lay Catholics have organised a pro-life Rosary Crusade around the country on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, 8 December 2018.

People take part in the NZ Pro-Life Rosary Crusade, from 3pm praying to defend life from conception to natural death.

On the same day people will gather in Wellington to take part in the National March for Life, at Civic Square at 2pm and walk down Lambton Quay to Parliament grounds where the rosary will be prayed on Parliament lawn.

Organisers are hoping all who can will travel to Wellington to join the March for Life or will join the Rosary Crusade prayers at other locations throughout the country. Organisers are looking for people to lead the Rosary Crusade in their locality.
