SIEGE OF JERICHO
ACCOMPANY THE BLESSED SACRAMENT IN
DAILY PUBLIC ROSARY PROCESSIONS IN
EDGBASTON BIRMINGHAM TO END ABORTION
Monday 10th October to Sunday 16th October 2011
In this our sixth year and as part of a 40 day vigil priests and people praying the rosary are to process the Blessed Sacrament round the abortion centre at Arthur Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham 15 following the route Arthur Road, Carpenter Road and Ampton Road.
On the weekdays from Monday 10th October to Saturday 15th October 2011 inclusive we will start with Mass at the Oratory Church, Hagley Road, Edgbaston at 3pm and after travelling to Arthur Road priests (one carrying the Blessed Sacrament unseen) and people will process once around the route. It will take about 20 minutes.
OnSunday 16th October 2011 we will start at Arthur Road (no Mass) at 2pm and process around the route seven times
We invite all who cannot attend to join us in prayer from their churches and homes or elsewhere, especially the old and the sick.
1. For a conversion of heart among the organisers and staff of the abortion centre and centres generally so that they and others may join the present movement to stop abortions worldwide. They will know at first hand the distressing effects abortion has on women and the cruel death visited on the babies aborted.
2. To reinstate the priesthood in the eyes of the people, one of God’s purposes at the original siege of jericho on which we model this prayer crusade.
