Join Us for the March for Life - DC

This week the Maronite Servants will travel to Washington, D.C. to attend the annual March for life, which will mark the 39th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision Roe v. Wade legalizing abortion. We encourage all who can to come to D.C. and join us at the March, along with His Excellency, Bishop Gregory Mansour, our beloved priests, seminarians, friends and Maronite families in giving witness to the sanctity and dignity of human life, and especially for all unborn babies.

Tens of thousands of people including our Maronite people from across the country are expected to gather Monday January 23 for this year’s March for life with the theme “Unite on the life principles to overturn Roe v. Wade and with love to protect mothers and preborn children-no exception, no compromise.”

We will also attend the annual National Prayer Vigil for Life at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception which begins with a January 22 vigil Mass celebrated by Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, chairman of the Committee on Pro-Life Activities for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Marchers are invited to stay in the Basilica’s lower level to sleep overnight and participate in various prayer services, including the rosary, confession, hourly holy hours, night prayer, morning prayer concluding with a morning Mass celebrated by New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan.
