The Knights of Columbus of Monmouth County has planned its annual Mass for Life and March for Life for April 15 in Red Bank.

“As Catholics, this is something very near and dear to us,” said Colin Casey, district deputy for the Knights of Columbus within the Diocese of Trenton. "Despite the overturning of Roe v. Wade, babies in the womb are still at risk of being aborted. Efforts to protect all human life must continue."

Mass will be celebrated at 8 a.m. in St. Anthony of Padua Church, 121 Bridge Ave., Red Bank, by Father Alberto Tamayo, pastor, concelebrated by Father Nick Dolan, parochial vicar, and other priests of the Diocese.

Following Mass, participants will process in a March for Life for approximately 1.5 miles from the church to the Planned Parenthood facility on Newman-Springs Road in Shrewsbury, where they will pray the Rosary for unborn children and their families. Marchers will be accompanied by many Knights of Columbus District Deputies, Grand Knights and Respect Life ministries from Monmouth County. A presence from the Red Bank and Shrewsbury Police Departments will be on hand.

After the March, participants are invited to return to St. Anthony Parish grounds for a barbecue to celebrate life.

Often planned in January to coincide with the Roe v. Wade decision, the March was moved to just after Easter in hopes that warmer weather would inspire more participation. Casey noted that the Knights of Columbus have prepared for the event by hosting viewings in many parishes of the movie “Unplanned,” the story of former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson and her conversion from the pro-choice stance to one of supporting the pro-life cause.

“Many have told us that the movie prompted a change in heart on how they view abortion,” Casey attested.
