Join March For Life Virtually On 1/29!

On Friday, January 22 nd, faithful throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and throughout the United States observed the 48 th Anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions legalizing abortion nationwide. Since that time, millions of lives have been lost to abortion.

Each year, thousands of faithful from the Archdiocese travel to Washington D.C. to participate in the National March for Life, an event that promotes the respect and protection of all human life from conception to natural death.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 National Rally scheduled for Friday, January 29 th, will take place virtually.
