Rain showers on Monday, Jan. 23 didn’t dampen the spirits of the students of St. Bede School in Holland, who for the third year held their own March for Life. Much like the March for Life held in Washington, D.C. on the same day, the children protested in a prayerful way the Supreme Court’s decision that permits unborn children to be aborted.
While this year’s event was cut short due to the weather, the students and several parishioners marched from the school gymnasium to the church, carrying colorful signs defending all life. “The important thing is our prayers,” said St. Bede pastor Msgr. John C. Marine, who led the children in prayers to the Blessed Mother and St. Francis of Assisi.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
