As we have each year since our founding as a mission, Holy Cross members will witness to the sacredness of each individual life, from conception, by joining thousands of others in Washington, DC for the March for Life. This year's rally and march will be held on Friday, January 22.
We're joining this year with St Philip Neri Catholic Church in traveling to and from the rally site in buses. We'll meet at Holy Cross for prayers at 9:00am and then drive to the parking lot at St. Philip Neri around 9:30. The buses will stop briefly at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and then on to the rally and march, expecting to return no later than 5:00pm.
The cost is $20 for adults, with children under 18 free. Bring a bag lunch. To register (and pay), contact Fr Gregory at firstname.lastname@example.org. (note from Father: I am grateful to Fr Michael DeAscanis, St Philip's new Pastor, for offering to include us. I'm sure we'll enjoy getting to know our Catholic neighbors who share our commitment to life.)
