God blessed us with beautiful weather on Sunday, January 22nd, for our March for Life at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Maumee. The event was hosted by the Maumee St. Joseph Knights of Columbus. The group marched about a mile to the church cemetery where prayers were said at the Monument to the Unborn. Afterwards those marching returned to the church for soup, cookies and beverages. Thank you to all who attended!
Despite the heavy rain, over 100 gathered at the Defiance County Courthouse on Monday, January 23rd, to March for Life. A police escort led the march from the courthouse to the Monu-ment of the Unborn on Jackson Avenue for prayer. This was followed by a program and hot chocolate in the church basement.
MARCH FOR LIFE 2017 in Washington, D.C.
The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began as a small demonstration on January 22, 1974, the first anniversary of the now-infamous Supreme Court decisions in Roe v Wade and Doe v Bolton and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, legalized abortion on demand. But you don't have to go to Washington to participate!
