Archbishop Aquila to pray against SB 175
State Capitol, April 15 at 3pm (Hour of Divine Mercy)

Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila will pray on the steps of the State Capitol in Denver today at 3pm for the intention of stopping SB175, the “Reproductive Health Freedom Act.”

In a letter sent out Monday afternoon, he explained that SB175, “which would enshrine the ‘right to abortion’ into Colorado law, is scheduled for Tuesday, April 15, and it’s starting to look like everything is hanging in the balance with the votes of one or two senators.”

“I know many of you spent 10 minutes in prayer over the weekend,” he continued, “and have written your senators about this bill. Now, I am asking that we come together to pray.”

He set the time at 3pm, which is the Hour of Divine Mercy. “I prayerfully ask that those of you who can, will come and join me,” he said.

The archbishop will have limited media availability after the prayer event.
