Bishop John Doerfler speaks at Marquette, MI 40 Days for Life Kickoff

You might remember that late last summer, the abortion facility in Green Bay closed its doors for good. A few months later, the Diocese of Green Bay lost its Vicar General, Fr. John Doerfler, who was named and installed as the Bishop of Marquette, MI.

What do these two news items from 2013 have in common?

Unfortunately, Planned Parenthood in Upper Michigan started dispensing chemical abortion pills following the end of abortion in Green Bay. As such, some Yoopers for Life launched a 40 Days for Life campaign in Marquette. Bishop John Doerfler offered remarks at the kickoff event. The diocesan newspaper, UP Catholic, was there to cover his remarks:


If any of the Wisconsin dioceses are doing video reporting, I haven't seen it. Well done, Yooper Catholics!

Here is additional footage from the kickoff rally.

I'll be speaking at the midpoint rally on Tuesday, March 25 (the Feast of the Annunciation!) at 5:30 p.m. in Marquette.

  1. Good for the Bishop!

    Somebody pass on to him how the Rockford bishop authorized exorcisms at the notorious Rockford clinic. Give Satan both barrels.
