March for Life 2006

Just a reminder: The 33rd annual March for Life will be held on Monday, January 23 in Washington DC. I did the march for the first time last year and it was amazing and such a fun, prayerful way of affirming life. Anyone who is in the DC-area or who has a parish/group making a trip there, please come! You won't regret it.

And, if you can, I also encourage everyone to attend the Vigil Mass for Life on Sunday, January 22 at 8 p.m. at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. I went to this Mass last year as well and it was probably the most beautiful Mass I've ever been to. Christ does hear our prayers so powerfully in the Mass and it is the surest way of defending life and defeating abortion.

On Monday, Jan. 23, there are two Masses you can attend. One is a Mass for Life at 7:30 a.m. at the Shrine. The Archdiocese of Washington has for the past several years also sponsored a Rally for Life and Youth Mass the morning of the walk at the MCI Center. Find out more about that here.
