March for Life, Washington DC, coming up

I have received information from Priests for Life about the upcoming March for Life which takes place in Washington DC on Monday 24th January. Together with our pastor Msgr Michael Steber I'm hoping to attend with a group from the diocese of Marquette.

There is a lot going on that weekend as the following from the Priests for Life website describes:

2011 March for Life - Walk for Life

Attend and participate in the activities below

Support the men and women of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign by attending the Campaign gathering in Washington, DC or San Francisco, CA and listening to the testimonies.  If you regret your abortion or lost fatherhood, sign up to hold a sign or give your testimony by emailing Georgette at  Whether or not you can attend the gatherings, please spread the testimonies found at

Attention: Pro-Life materials available: We would like to provide your entire parish with Pro-life prayer cards and You Can Save Someone’s Life Today bulletin inserts, free of charge! This bulletin insert provides several ideas for how anyone can participate in the pro-life movement. The prayer cards, along with a video, are also available for buses going to the March for Life in DC or the Walk for Life in San Francisco. Schools can also benefit from the prayer cards by getting all of the students to pray together for life.  Call us at 1-888-735-3448 x238 or email

  1. I am really looking forward to the Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco. It is always a phenomenal event. This is the 7th one and the first one only had 7,000 people walking. Compare that to last years pro life crowd of 35,000. We are having Abby Johnson speak at the event. Hoping she will do some book signing of her "Unplanned". Poor lady.... am sure she will have a sore arm by the end of the day! We are so blessed to have Fr Frank Pavone of course too. What an inspiration he is.
