Catholics in the archdiocese joined others around the country in marking the anniversary of Roe v. Wade with Masses, prayer services and marches.
Krystal and Ona Sodaitis reflect before an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe following the annual archdiocesan Mass for Life on Jan. 15 at St. Mary of the Angels Parish, 1850 N. Hermitage Ave. The candles in front of the statue represent the 27,000 children lost to abortion in Cook and Lake counties. Cardinal George celebrated the Mass, which was sponsored by the archdiocesan Respect Life Office.
