Join us for the 2015 March for Life!
January 22, 2015 – Washington, DC
We are gearing up for the 42nd Annual Pilgrimage and March for Life in Washington, DC. As you know, this year the March for Life takes place on Thursday, January 22nd. Most of our parishes/schools in the various counties have buses that go down to DC for the day but you should also know that about 500 Youth Pilgrims will be going the day before and many are staying overnight for a huge gathering early on the morning of Jan 22nd. There is also a special Young Adult Bus that leaves from Manhattan and also Latinos for Life from our Archdiocese will be hosting various events and buses.

Local events will be posted soon.
Join in praying for the sanctity of all human life on the National Night of Prayer for Life, December 8-9. This prayer service typically consists of 4 hours of adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, recitation of the Rosary and other vocal prayer, silent meditation, and Benediction to end the evening. We will be united with parishes across the country in prayer to end abortion and all offenses against the dignity of the human person, to make reparation for these sins, and pray for the healing of those who are suffering. This effort will help build the culture of life and civilization of love in our nation.
