Annual Feast of the Holy Innocents Mass
Jamison, Pennsylvania –
The Feast of the Holy Innocents is observed each December 28th to remember the children slaughtered by King Herod and his henchmen. According to the Gospel of Matthew, Herod ordered the execution of all young male children in the “Vicinity of Bethlehem,” so as to avoid the loss of his throne to a newborn King of the Jews whose birth had been announced to him by the Magi.

This feast day holds a particular significance to the pro-life movement as we also remember all the innocent pre-born babies killed each and every day through the terrible sin of abortion. In Bucks County, Pennsylvania, a Mass is celebrated each year on this date to honor the memory of those children who have been killed though abortion.
