Christianity is always called to seek justice, but it bears within the impulse of love, that goes beyond justice itself.”        Pope Benedict XVI

“A great prayer for life is urgently needed…prayer and fasting are the first and most effective weapons against the forces of evil.”

Pope John Paul II, The Gospel of Life

The Helpers are an international pro-life group founded by Msgr. Philip Reilly under the direction of Cardinal John O’ Connor and Bishop Thomas Daily of New York. Its main apostolate is prayer at abortion sites. To date, 5 Cardinals and more than 100 Bishops have participated in the Helpers large prayer vigils in the USA.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.    
                                                                                                (Psalm 139:13-16)

Fr. Robert Bissell

We will process prayerfully to the Marie Stopes Abortion Centre at 91 Bree Street Cape Town, with full permission from the City Council

Times (approx) are as follows:

09:30am Holy Sacrifice of the Mass celebrated at Sacred Heart Church

After Mass the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed for adoration, and some people will stay to adore the Blessed Sacrament.

10:00am Prayerful and peaceful procession to the Marie Stopes abortuary in Bree street, during which the Holy Rosary is prayed, and Hymns are sung
11:30am Return Procession with Prayers and Hymns


If you are not able to join us at the site to to give a witness of your love for this tiny being so wonderfully knit in his mother's womb, in the hope that even one precious infant's life might be saved, that one mother might hold her child the day of his birth, that one father might carry his offspring, then we ask you to join us in spirit, and include the prayer for Spiritual Supporters of God's Precious Infants in your morning offering.
