2015 Walk for Life in San Francisco
The Walk for Life West Coast is honored to announce that Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, the Holy Father’s Ambassador to the United States, will be attending the 11th Annual Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco, on January 24, 2015.
“What an honor! We are so excited—this is the next best thing to having the Holy Father himself with us!” said Eva Muntean, a co-founder of the Walk. Archbishop Viganò, appointed on October 19, 2011, the Feast of the North American Martyrs, is the 14th Papal representative to the United States. The diplomatic post was established in 1893.
Archbishop Viganò spoke at the Walk for Life West Coast rally in 2013, saying, “You can’t imagine how happy I am to be here with you today. To see so many people love life .... You are the best of the United States of America!” Organizers and those attending the Walk this year will be excited to hear his message of support again.
The 2015 event will begin at 12:30 PM in the city’s Civic Center Plaza. Rally speakers include Julia Holcomb, Rebekah Buell, Jim and Joy Pinto, and Rev. Clenard Childress.
Following the rally, Walkers will march down Market Street to Justin Herman Plaza.
Founded in 2005 by a group of San Francisco Bay Area residents, the Walk for Life West Coast’s mission is to change the perceptions of a society that thinks abortion is an answer. Walk participants are expected from throughout the Bay Area and across the United States and Canada.

Ordinary Time refers to a season of the Christian liturgical calendar, particularly the calendar of the ordinary form of the Roman rite of the Catholic Church, although some other churches in Western Christianity also use the term. The English name "Ordinary time" translates the Latin term tempus per annum (literally "time through the year").
Since 1970 in the ordinary form of the Roman rite in the Catholic Church, Ordinary Time comprises two periods: one beginning on the day after the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord (the end of the Christmas season) and ending on the day before Ash Wednesday, the other beginning on the Monday after Pentecost (the conclusion of Eastertide) and continuing until the Saturday before Advent Sunday (The First Sunday of Advent).
The Church numbers the weeks of Ordinary Time. Several Sundays bear the name of feasts or solemnities celebrated on those days, including Trinity Sunday and the Feast of Christ the King. The liturgical color normally assigned to Ordinary Time is green. MORE AT WIKIPEDIA.ORG....
