"Terri's Day Announced"

Support in D.C.
Groups call for special remembrances of Terri Schiavo

The Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation and Priests for Life have jointly announced the establishment of the “International Day of Prayer and Remembrance for Terri Schindler Schiavo, and All of Our Vulnerable Brothers and Sisters” (“Terri’s Day”), to be observed each year on March 31, the date of Terri’s death.

The purpose of the day, the groups explained, is to foster education, prayer, and activism regarding discrimination against the disabled, and advocacy for people in situations similar to what Terri and her family faced.

Fr. Frank Pavone said, “Those of us who were with Terri will never forget her life and her death. For the sake of all the vulnerable, it is critically important that those who never knew Terri likewise remember the lessons that God taught us through her.”
