The 2020 Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life March for Life will take place at noon on the Minnesota State Capitol grounds in St. Paul. The purpose of the March is to commemorate the 60 million+ lives lost to abortion (and the women and men who have been hurt as a result) and to call for renewed respect and protection for all members of the human family, including unborn children and their mothers.
Please pray for our March for Life participants and Fr. DiRocco making the nearly 1120 mile pilgrimage to our nation’s capital this week. They will be praying for all of us, as well. Thank you to those whose financial donations helped ensure a full bus.
