Pilgrimage to Washington DC for March for Life.
Teens from St Jude Youth Ministry ‘Pope’s Army’ will be joining over 700’000 other youth from around the country in Washington DC on January 18th 2019. They will be marching in protest of the Roe v Wade decision on January 22, 1973, that resulted in making abortion legal in the United States of America. The Catholic youth of America has consequently Marched every year for the past 45 years, asking for a reversal of that decision.
Last year’s assembly was addressed via satellite by President Donald Trump and in person by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.
This event is made possible by the generosity of St Jude Parishoners. Cost of each pilgrim is around $300 and much of that is offset via fundraising and generous donations.
St Jude Youth Ministry wishes to thank all those who helped us raise funds, organize the pilgrimage and prayed for our success. Without you we would not be able to do what we do!
