PRIESTS FOR LIFE SCHEDULE TO CELEBRATE, COMMEMORATE AND PROMOTE
My team and I will be in DC and San Francisco in a few weeks leading various events surrounding the March for Life and Walk for Life and I hope you can join us in one (or both!) of those cities. Here they are….
2023 March for Life, Washington, DC
Thursday, January 19
9-11 a.m.: Priests for life will lead an interdenominational prayerful protest at Planned
Parenthood killing center in DC at 1225 Fourth Street NE. Prayers and speeches, led by Pro-Life
Leader Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, Janet Morana, Bryan Kemper, and
other pro-life leaders and activists.
Friday, January 20
8:30 -10:30 a.m. – National Prayer Service at DAR Constitution Hall, 1776 D St., NW (18th and D
St). Catholic mass at 7:30 am. celebrated by Fr. David Begany, S.S.J. and concelebrated by Fr.
Denis Wilde, O.S.A. Being held just two days before the 50-year mark since Roe vs. Wade, we
will celebrate the reversal of that decision and the end of that tragic chapter of American
life. Pro-Life Leader Frank Pavone will deliver a strong pro-life message to rally the crowd
and we will honor key leaders of the Pregnancy Center movement. The pregnancy centers are such
a key aspect of the pro-life movement, and the way in which so many of you are involved in
saving the unborn and helping their families. Please spread the word to your own local centers
to come to the prayer service in solidarity with centers across the land! Mike Donehey of the
popular Christian music band Tenth Avenue North will be the musical guest. Admission is free.
Help us fill the beautiful hall with prayers and song as we prepare to go out and march in
defense of the most defenseless among us. Get more information at

and the Interdenominational prayer service.

Gathering of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign begins. Testimonies are given by mothers and
