Before the national March for Life Jan. 22 in Washington, D.C., people who want to show their commitment to the pro-life cause publicly will have the chance in Chester County.
The 23rd annual Chester County March for Life will take place Sunday, Jan. 17 starting at 2:30 p.m. at St. Agnes Church, West Chester. Mercy and family are the themes of the ecumenical prayer and civic service.
Two Protestant ministers will deliver prayers, Public Witness awards will be presented and the keynote address will be offered by Father Chris Rogers, pastor of St. Patrick Parish in Kennett Square. The SS. Simon and Jude School Choir will lead the gathering in song during the program.
Following a prayer outside the church at the service’s conclusion, all participants are invited to carry signs and join a silent march to the Old Chester County Courthouse. The public witness at the courthouse will end with a short prayer service and a song.
