March for Life planned in Washington

The annual March for Life will take place Jan. 22 at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

In concert with the annual March for Life, the U.S. bishops invite all Catholics to pray for the protection of all human life by participating in a special novena called 9 Days for Life, from Jan. 16-24. Join thousands of others in praying for the protection of all human life. Download the novena online, or participate through Facebook, e-mail, text message or an app. Join at www.9daysforlife.com.

More information about all the March for Life events is available at www.usccb.org/about/pro-life-activities/january-roe-events/index.cfm.

There will be no Diocese of Burlington-sponsored bus to Washington, D.C., this year for the annual March for Life. It is hoped there will be one next year.
