Join the Pilgrimage to March for Life

WASHINGTON—On Friday, January 18, 2019, many will gather at our nation’s capital to commemorate the 46th anniversary of the passing of Roe vs. Wade. Thousands from across the country will march, peacefully and in unity, to the steps of Capital to raise awareness of the many lives lost to abortion. To date, almost 60 million lives have been taken since the landmark decision was handed down by the Supreme Court.  


The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began as a small demonstration in 1974 and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since 1973 is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, legalized abortion on demand.


Consider joining us on our diocesan bus. We will leave from St. Augustine’s in Bridgeport making stops at St. Thomas in Norwalk and The Basilica of St. John the Evangelist in Stamford.
