Hundreds of Thousands March for Life on the National Mall

Best Blogger Tips

The annual March for Life was held Friday, January 25, commemorating the 40th Anniversary of Roe versus Wade. Catholic Charities' Sanctuaries for Life staff participated in the March and helped the Archdiocese of Washington’s Project Rachel Ministry distribute information at the Adult Rally/Mass held at St. Matthew's Cathedral.  

Even though it was a very cold day, our Sanctuaries staff report the weather didn’t hinder the spirits among the thousands from all over the country from participating in the March! 
Under all those layers are Jenny and Michelle from our Sanctuaries for Life,
marching with thousands of others at last week's March for Life!

Thousands pack the streets, seizing the opportunity to voice their support of life
here in the nation's capital

As Michelle (Program Director for Sanctuaries for Life) said, "It's cold, but the good spirit
of everyone gathered keeps us warm!"
