 March for Life

The March for Life began as a small demonstration and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. In January of 1974, thousands of pro-lifers participated in the first March for Life to stand up against abortion. An inspiring rally was held as Members of Congress announced pro-life legislation and expressed their support for the pro-life cause. Since then, many more individuals have traditionally marched for the legal protection of unborn children and for loving support for suffering women.

Upcoming January 24, 2020, consider uniting with others who share the faith that all life is unique from day oneand join thousands of individuals who band together every year at our nation's capital, Washington D.C.  

Read Bishop Malesic's letter addressing our goal in protecting the sanctity of life.

 Respect Life Program

Every Life: Cherished, Chosen, Sent

The Respect Life Program, held annually from October through September of the following year, aims to teach the values of respecting one of God's greatest gifts.

It is a nationwide effort to educate Catholics with knowledge so that they may become more engaged in spreading awareness, and building a culture that cherishes every human life.

Sponsored by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Respect Life Program is comprised of the efforts of leaders throughout the Church like you—parish priests, staff, and volunteers; teachers and school administrators; diocesan leaders; and so many others.
