Prayer and rally events to promote pro-life legislation set for July 21 and 26 in Indy

Criterion staff report

The Indiana General Assembly will begin its special session to address abortion-related legislation, among other items, on July 25. As The Criterion was going press, two events to encourage legislation protecting the unborn and helping moms and children were reported to The Criterion.

From 7-9 p.m. on July 21, two consecutive holy hours will be offered at St. John the Evangelist Church, 126 W. Georgia St., in Indianapolis. These hours will be a time of adoration and prayer for legislators as they develop and vote on legislation to protect all human life. All are invited to come and pray for one or both hours. For more information, call the parish office at 317-635-2021.

From 11-11:45 a.m. on July 26, Indiana Right to Life will hold a rally inside the south atrium of the Indiana Statehouse, 200 W. Washington St., in Indianapolis. The event will include a welcome by Indiana Right to Life president and CEO Mike Fichter, prayer, a speaker and a legislative update. Attendees will then be dismissed to visit the offices of their legislators.

There is no cost for the event. Those who register in advance will receive a free “Love Them Both” T-shirt.

A large turnout is expected. It is suggested to arrive early to allow time to pass through Statehouse security. The statehouse will open its doors, located on the east side of the building facing Capitol Avenue and on the west side facing Senate Avenue (which is ADA accessible), at 9 a.m. Buses and vans should drop off participants by the east side entrance. Those with disabilities may be dropped off at the west side entrance.

Metered street parking and public parking garages are available, but early arrival is suggested to ensure finding a place to park.

Participants are asked not to bring their own signs. Signs will be provided at the rally site.
