Dedicated faithful departed buses from all four counties of the Diocese Jan. 18 to take part in the annual March for Life in Washington.
“I’m always excited and energized about this event. There are so many diverse people from young to old, Catholic and non-Catholic. In that unity, I see a ‘glimmer of God’ speaking to them [the participants],” Deacon Frank Golazeski of Incarnation-St. James Parish, Ewing, said as the bus carrying congregants from numerous parishes set out.
WASHINGTON – Those who stand up for the dignity of life in all its stages and want to see this respect for all life enshrined once again in U.S. law have a friend in the Pence family and the Trump Administration, Vice President Mike Pence told the March for Life crowd on the National Mall Jan. 18.
Pence and second lady Karen Pence were a surprise addition to the roster of speakers at the rally, and after his remarks, the vice president introduced a videotaped message by President Donald Trump, which also was unexpected.
On Jan. 17, hours before faithful from all corners of the Diocese were due to board 10 buses bound for the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., hundreds gathered with Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., to pray the pilgrims on their way.
