Salesian Father Jose Lucero Leads Parishioners at 40 Days for Life

Valerie Schmalz, writing in this week's Catholic San Francisco reports on San Francisco's "40 Days for Life" vigil, and the March 18 closing of the Golden Gate Health Center (formerly Planned Parenthood Golden Gate). The story is on page 10 of the PDF version of the paper.

She shares the good news that Salesian priest Fr. Jose Lucero, of Corpus Christi Church, will lead his parishioners at Planned Parenthood's new location:

"On March 19, the San Francisco 40 Days for Life vigil will move to 1650 Valencia St. in the Mission District, where Planned Parenthood Shasta Pacific opened a clinic in January. That
clinic is within a 10-minute walk of Corpus Christi Church and school, said Corpus Christi
Associate Pastor Salesian Father Jose Lucero, who began praying with parishioners outside
the clinic on Ash Wednesday.

'It is clear that there should not be abortions allowed – period,' said Father Lucero, who began recruiting parishioners at all the Masses on the weekend of March 5-6. 'They should
not be happening. Anyone Catholic needs to uphold that.'”

God bless this Son of Don Bosco! May other priests follow his example!
