March for Life – Featured Program
Chairman John Bowlin Life Programs
The March for Life commemorates the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Courts infamous Roe v Wade decision that Legalized abortion on January 22, 1973.
January is an important Prolife Month. As Knights we vow to defend God’s Gift of Life, especially the life of the most vulnerable, the unborn.
Brother Knights are encouraged in their local marches, to carry council banners, Defend Life Signs, KofC posters, wear their jackets with the KofC emblem while walking together to show support for the Right to Life and praying the rosary for an end to the intrinsic evil of abortion.
Prayer Service for Life (Jan.22, 2021)
For this year’s MCCL March for Life, a “Virtual March” is planned for Jan. 22, 2021. We do not encourage people to come to the Capitol building, which is shut down. Some MCCL chapters will hold local in-person gatherings, and we encourage everyone to view our Virtual March for Life at noon on Jan. 22—you can watch on Facebook and elsewhere as we commemorate the lives lost to abortion.
Please join us at the Cathedral of Saint Paul, Friday, January 22, 10:30 a.m. for the Annual Prayer Service for Life. This prayer service commemorates the millions of lives lost to abortion and the many women and men wounded by abortion’s aftermath. Archbishop Hebda will also be recognizing those who exemplify pro-life work in our local communities with the Saint John Paul II Champion for Life Award.
Physical attendance will be limited to 250 guests. The entrance and exit doors to the Cathedral are clearly marked and identified as either entrance or as an exit. There is one door on each side of the church designated as an Entrance Door (Selby, Dayton and John Ireland Avenues). The Knights of Columbus will be admitting people into the Cathedral at each of these locations. We ask for your patience as we adhere to the protocols needed to keep everyone safe. Doors will open at 9:30 am for admittance.
A Live Stream service will be available on the Cathedral Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/cathedralsaintpaul.
No matter what event you attend, don’t forget to bring your council banners; to wear shirts, caps and jackets with the K of C emblem; and to march together as a council. You can also order 13” x 20” Choose Life signs (#9341- available at no charge in English, French or Spanish). To order signs, call 203-752-4403 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email, please provide your name, council number, address, telephone number and the exact number of signs you wish to order.
See you at the March!
