San Francisco’s Interfaith Committee for Life’s 27th annual Memorial Service for the Victims of Abortion will spotlight the work of the Marin Pregnancy Clinic. St. Sebastian Catholic Church, in Greenbrae, will host the February 28, 2014, 7:30 pm ecumenical service which will combine the reading of Scripture, singing, the offering of prayer, and preaching with the highlighting of a Pro-Life clinic dedicated to providing medical care and practical solutions to women facing unexpected pregnancies.
Prior to 2013, this service took place on the eve of January’s Walk for Life West Coast. Separating the Walk for Life and the Memorial Service provides the Bay Area with another distinct opportunity to gather ecumenically in support of Life. Additionally, by drawing attention to a specific Pro-Life group each year, we hope to encourage financial and volunteer support for that group,” says IFCL Chairman, Father Aris P. Metrakos. The theme of the 2014 service is “Light Up the World.”
“Supporting the work of the Marin Pregnancy Clinic is one of the most effective things that people can do in the Bay Area to bring light and hope to people who have felt darkness and despair,” says IFCL member Chastidy Ronan about the North Bay clinic whose prenatal counseling and postpartum support provide women facing crisis pregnancies with an alternative to abortion.
St. Sebastian’s is located at 373 Bon Air Rd at the corner of Sir Francis Drake Blvd., Greenbrae, CA 94904. For more information, please contact Father Mark Taheny, (415) 461-0704.
