Marchers urged to stand strong, fight for life with ‘compassion, hope’
Over 1,000 parishioners from across the Diocese of Rockville Centre and nearly 700 high school students travelling officially with each of the nine Catholic High Schools in the Diocese participated in the 46th annual March for Life on Friday, January 18, in Washington, DC.
The diocesan contingent joined over one hundred thousand others who witnessed for the Gospel of Life on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Bishop John Barres was present, greeting and blessing the individuals and groups from schools and parishes who braved the cold to show their belief in the dignity of all human life.
