Young men leading the Life’s 5th Quarter Rosary procession to and from the Planned Parenthood abortion business on Auburn Avenue (Mt. Auburn/Cincinnati) turn the corner and begin the return walk up the hill to Holy Name Church. Begun this year by Covington Catholic High School football coach Rich Andolina, the youth-focused events are meant as an opportunity for young people who attend the annual March for Life in Washington, DC, to continue their pro-life witness at home. The bishops of Cincinnati and Covington have participated in the three previous L5Q events, and Saturday’s brought young people and families from CovCath, St. Henry District High School (Covington), St. Edmund Campion Academy (Oakley, OH), St. Pius X School (Edgewood, KY), Holy Family homeschool co-op, and the Knight of St. George scouting organization.
The school year ends before the next fifth Saturday, but L5Q will continue during the one fifth Saturday of summer, July 30. All are welcome for 8 am Mass at Holy Name followed by Adoration and a rosary procession to the abortion business. For more information see the Life’s 5th Quarter Facebook page. Pro-life Masses and rosary processions are held every Saturday at the church, sponsored by either the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants or Mary’s Mantle pro-life groups.
