The 47th Annual March for Life is a unique opportunity for Catholics to show strong support for the unborn in our country.

On January 24, 2020, youth and adults from all over the U.S. will come together at the Mall in Washington, D.C. in the largest annual human rights demonstration in the world. Attendees will pray, listen to pro-life speakers and get to know others fighting for the same cause.

The “Life is VERY Good” youth rally will be included in the pilgrimage, along with some free time to visit sites in our nation’s capital and time at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, also known as America’s Catholic Church.

If you want to join the pilgrimage sponsored by the diocesan Office of Marriage, Family and Respect Life, the dates are January 22-26, 2020. Youth and adults are welcome. For more information about itinerary, cost and registration, visit
