Campaign Life Coalition's National March for Life 2019, takes place on Thursday, May 9. It begins with a Pro-life rally on Parliament Hill at 12:30 pm, followed by the March through the streets of downtown Ottawa starting at 1:30 pm.
But, there is more to the National March for Life: There are Talks, Pro-life Masses, a Candle Light Vigil, the Rose Dinner, the Youth Banquet and a Youth Conference. For more information about all these events pick up a National March for Life 2019 info card at the Social Justice bulletin board or visit: www.marchforlife.ca.
Parishioners going to the March are encouraged to meet up with one another at the Eternal Flame on Parliament Hill between 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm. The rally at 12:30 is quite inspiring with many excellent speakers. Also inspiring is the March itself with the presence of so many people of all ages who are there supporting all life from conception to natural death and recognizing the evil of our Culture of Death.
St. Pope John Paul II tells us “love life, cherish life, defend life, from conception to natural death.”
