Bishop Walsh responds to Proposal 3 passing

Bishop Jeffrey J. Walsh prayerfully responds to the passing of the Proposal 3 amendment to the Michigan State Constitution:

“The passing of Proposal 3 in the state of Michigan is a tremendous sorrow for all who recognize the dignity of the human person, created in God’s image and likeness from the first moment of conception. I want to thank everyone who made efforts and gave resources to defeat Proposal 3. The pro-life movement has proven resilient in the past, and we will muster the strength to persevere in defending life in new, yet unforeseen ways in the future. As disciples of Christ, our mission must always be to receive life as a gift from God, heal those broken by the sin of abortion, and walk with moms in need. It is our sincere hope that, despite unjust civil laws, people will choose to follow divine law, and therein find their true happiness.”

Bishop Walsh invites the faithful to participate in a Day of Fasting and Prayer in reparation for sins against the Fifth Commandment on Friday November 18, 2022. Click to learn more.
