Local March for Life at Minnesota Capitol
Sunday, January 22nd

On Sunday, January 22nd, we commemorate the 43rd Year of the Roe v Wade decision that legalized abortion.

The MCCL March for life begins at 2 p.m. outside on the Capitol steps south of the Capitol building. Parking is available in several nearby locations. Another option is the light rail Metro Green Line, which stops at the Capitol.

There will not be a prayer service at the Cathedral this year because of Sunday Masses.

Signs will be handed out before and during the March. Marchers follow a circular route around the Mall grounds, marching from 2-2:30 p.m.

Then at 2:30, marchers gather for a prolife program held on the Capitol steps. It includes an opening prayer and a brief keynote address. The program concludes by 3 p.m. Families are encouraged to treat this entire day as a day of Prayer for Life - praying the rosary and special devotions to Blessed Virgin Mary.

We hope you can join us and show your com- mitment to life and opposition to a culture of death. In the words of Carl Anderson, "the K of C formula is simple; become informed, get involved and stand up for life."
