Join the Buffalo Diocese and hundreds of thousands of Catholics and others in solidarity for a pilgrimage of public witness, penance and prayer for all those effected by the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, and for the conversion of those who misguidely perpetuate it. We look forward once again to a unified and powerful stand against the Roe v. Wade decision!
