Corpus Christi Parishioners Attend the Oakland Diocese East Bay Respect Life Mass
Fr. Luis Lopez and some of the parishioners of Corpus Christi Parish in Fremont attended the first-ever East Bay Respect Life Mass offered at the Cathedral of Light in Oakland, CA.
Prior to the event, Fr. Luis announced the upcoming Respect Life Mass at the Sunday and weekday Masses to encourage his parishioners to attend. He always let it be known that he, too, would attend and really wanted his parishioners to join him.
It was a beautiful Mass with many other priests attending. Also, there was a Bishop from Canada who had been Bishop Michael Barber’s Theology teacher in Seminary. Bishop Barber credited this Bishop with his finally becoming a priest.
Bishop Barber’s homily focused on the reality of the existence of human life at conception. He stressed that it is a scientific fact that we are human beings from the beginning and that each one of us started out the same way. To respect the child in the womb is to respect all human life.
After the Mass, many of the Corpus Christi parishioners and Fr. Luis went over to San Francisco to participate in the 19th Annual West Coast Walk for Life.
