WASHINGTON—For 47 years, people of all faiths, denominations, races and backgrounds have gone to Washington to march for life and stand against abortion. Thousands of pro-life supporters have converged on the National Mall and marched on Capitol Hill on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion.
A Prayerful Rosary March will take place on Friday, January 22 from 4:00-5:00 pm at the Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Trumbull. This event, occurring on the 48th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, is an opportunity for those unable to attend the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. to come together and pray for the unborn.
WASHINGTON—The on-site evening program for the January 28 National Prayer Vigil for Life will take place at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC, is closed to the public and will be taking place virtually.
TRUMBULL—Recognizing the power of praying the rosary and the on-going movement to repeal Roe v. Wade, parishioners from the Diocese of Bridgeport and beyond gathered at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Trumbull last Friday, braving the chill of a January afternoon to honor the unborn.
