National March for Life

National March for Life


Council: 1299 - GARDINER

Project Description:

Two brother Knights and their spouses made a four-day trip to Washington DC for the March for Life. They attended the March for Life Expo that showcased about 30 Pro-Life groups with tons of Pro-Life swag, information, and hundreds of ways to get the message out and support the Culture of Life. In the late morning they attended the Capitol Hill 101 workshop with an amazing pro-life panel of guests that are working hard in Washington DC to protect the lives of the unborn in our country . It was extremely informative and timely.

Later in the day they found their way to the National Basilica of the Shrine of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. They were blessed with confessions as well as a Mass and Eucharistic procession that can only be characterized as heavenly. You can find it on YouTube.

The day of the March for Life was jump-started with the band We Are Messenger. They were amazing and followed by a number of speakers including the keynote address by actor Jonathan Roumie who plays Jesus in the series The Chosen. It was a very moving address and can be seen on YouTube. The March itself was filled with young and old alike, but a huge number of them were young adults. We estimate at least 150,000 if not up to double that many. There are lots of rosaries and Divine Mercy chaplets being prayed along the march, some in Latin. It was an amazing March with little to no protests to be seen.
