Call for Peace and Vigilance at Mass by the Diocese of Fort Worth


There have been numerous and public calls recently by abortion activist groups to organize disruptions at Catholic Masses across the nation in response to the leaked decision from the Supreme Court regarding Roe v. Wade. This type of activity is an attempt to threaten the rightful and peaceful assembly of Christians to worship and disrupt the sanctity of the holy sacrifice of the Mass.


These groups are calling for people to dress in costume, carry signs and record their protests while attempting to enter churches in order to cause disruption and provocation. All of us must remain peaceful, prayerful, and recollected. Each and all of us should be more intentionally aware of our surroundings this weekend and in the coming months. If you see any type of suspicious activity, please remain calm and immediately report it to church volunteers who are the ushers and guardian ministry members so that they can respond as directed in order to prevent confrontation and preserve and promote the safety of all.


Spanish Translation:


Llamado de la Diócesis de Fort Worth a sus fieles para mantener la paz y a estar vigilantes en la Misa.


Se han emitido recientemente numerosos llamados públicos por parte de grupos activistas del aborto para organizar interrupciones en las misas católicas de todo el país en respuesta a la filtración del borrador de la Corte Suprema con respecto a Roe v. Wade. Este tipo de actividad constituiría una amenaza a la reunión legítima y pacífica de los cristianos para celebrar y adorar, y, además, perturbaría la santidad del santo sacrificio de la Misa.

Estos grupos piden a sus seguidores que se vistan con disfraces, lleven pancartas y graben sus protestas mientras intentan entrar a las iglesias para causar disturbios y provocaciones. Todos debemos permanecer en paz, oración y recogimiento. Debido a esta situación todos deberíamos estar más alertas sobre nuestro entorno este fin de semana y durante los próximos meses. Si usted ve algún tipo de actividad sospechosa, mantenga la calma e informe de inmediato a los voluntarios de la parroquia que son ujieres y los miembros del ministerio de guardianes para que puedan responder según las instrucciones recibidas para evitar cualquier confrontación y preservar y garantizar la seguridad de todos.
