#1

Albuquerque, N.M., Nov 23, 2016 / 03:10 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- A fire – allegedly set by arsonists – has closed a pro-life pregnancy center and chapel in New Mexico, shutting down its operations for the foreseeable future.

The Albuquerque Fire Department received a call at 12:32 AM on the morning of November 23, alerting them to smoke coming out of Project Defending Life, a pro-life pregnancy center in the city. When the firefighters arrived, they extinguished a fire in the chapel as well as others in rooms with pro-life information. No one was injured in the blaze.

Holy Innocents Chapel, located within the Project Defending Life center, is a Catholic chapel that was open for prayer and benediction. The Eucharist was reserved in the tabernacle at the time of the fire, but was safely removed, undamaged.
