Funeral for a Friend of the Pro-Life Movement: Nellie Gray

Nellie Gray, the founder of the March for Life, died at the age of 88 on August 13. Gray was  given a Requiem Mass at St. Mary, Mother of God Catholic Church in Washington, DC.  Her funeral was a beautifully sung Trinentine High Mass, celebrated by Pastor Alfred Harris, with Boston Archbishop Sean Cardinal O’Malley and Washington Archbishop Donald Cardinal Wuerl in attendance. Gray had been a parishioner at St. Mary’s for sixteen years. Gray was the driving force in the anti-abortion movements “Respect for human life–no exceptions.”  It was noted that she was actively planning the 40th anniversary March for Life  protesting the Roe v. Wade (1973) Supreme Court Abortion decision when she passed away. READ MORE at the DCBarroco website
