The 23rd annual Chester County March for Life brought together pro-life advocates for an ecumenical prayer service at St. Agnes Church in West Chester followed by a march to the Chester County Courthouse on Sunday, Jan. 17. Mercy and family was the theme of the afternoon service that featured prayers led by two Protestant ministers, a keynote talk by Father Christopher Rogers of St. Patrick Parish in Kennett Square plus the singing of patriotic songs in the church. The SS. Simon and Jude School Choir provided music. Afterward, participants carried pro-life signs as they marched several blocks through falling snow. The day concluded with refreshments at the Knights of Columbus Hall in West Chester. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
