Mass at the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption
August 11, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT
On Sunday, August 11, the Archbishop will celebrate Mass at 9:00 a.m. in the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption to conclude the Novena prayer for the defeat of Senate Bill 24.
The Archbishop urges Californians not only to pray but also to contact their lawmakers to express their opposition to SB 24. Time is short. The bill has passed the state Senate, has been approved by all state Assembly committees and awaits a floor vote when the State Legislature, currently in recess, reconvenes on Monday, August 12.
SB 24 mandates that the health centers at all state colleges and universities in California must provide “abortion by medication techniques.” As SB 24 states, “All California public university campuses have on-campus student health centers, but none of these health centers currently provide abortion by medication techniques.”
