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.
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.
