La Crosse parish hosts Adoration for WI Marriage Amendment Appeal July 26

The State of Wisconsin recently petitioned the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit to overturn a ruling that the Wisconsin law recognizing marriage as between one man-one woman is unconstitutional. A similar situation occurred in Indiana recently, so the U.S. Court of Appeals in Chicago will be hearing both appeals at the same time. A series of judicial rulings in late July and early August will determine the outcome. Catholics in both Wisconsin and Indiana have been in communication and are organizing spiritual opportunities for the Faithful. The time for prayer before Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament in support of marriage is now!

The USCCB has asked for Eucharistic Holy Hours on the last Sundays of the month for protection of life, marriage and religious freedom. Please join us at St. James the Less Catholic Church, (1032 Caledonia St., La Crosse, WI) on Saturday, July 26, the Feast of St. Joachim and St. Anne, with Eucharistic Adoration beginning after the Saturday evening Mass at 5:30 pm and continuing all night until Sunday, July 27 with Benediction and Reposition before the 7:30 am Mass. To sign up for a time please call or email me (608) 790-8998 or gemarc05@smumn.edu. Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!
St James - La Crosse
