Maronites March for Life 2014 - DC

We joined with the thousands of peaceful protestors in this year's 41st March for Life on Wednesday January 22 in Washington DC.  His Excellency, Bishop Gregory J. Mansour led our Maronite group in the rosary as we braved below zero temperatures joining with people from all over the country gathered outside at the National Mall.  Even Pope Francis sent his support and tweeted  "I join the March for Life in Washington with my prayers. May God help us respect all life, especially the most vulnerable."
