Diocesan Faithful To Participate in Annual March For Life in Washington

WASHINGTON, DC --  With the Blessing of His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas, Diocesan Clergy and Faithful, as they have for more than a quarter of a century, will take part in the annual March for Life in the Nation's Capitol on Monday January 24, 2011.  

The Annual March for Life takes place to mark the 38th Anniversary of  the January 22, 1973 Supreme Court Decision, known as Roe V. Wade which legalized abortion.

Prior to the Noon Rally on the National Mall,  Diocesan Faithful will gather at  Holy Resurrection Parish of Potomac Maryland for prayer and light refreshments.

At the National Mall they will join their brothers and sisters of  other Orthdox Dioceses in America and will March behind the Orthodox Christians for Life Banner up Pennsylvania Avenue, to Capitol Hill where, by the Supreme court, they will offer prayers for the victims of abortion.

On this day, Orthodox Christians throughout America are asked to prayerfully remember the victims of abortion, and to educate themselves about and support life-affirming, Church-related agencies and organizations, such as Zoe for LifeOrthodox Christians for Life, and The Tree House
