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)
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.
