Groups from ministries all over our province are in Washington DC today. Pictured here, on the Mall in Washington DC, are some of our friars who are participating in the March for Life 2018. All of the friars shown here serve in some of our ministries involving youth and young adults, but those are not the only ministries represented at this year’s March and the other events surrounding it. Please pray along with all of those present, those who can’t be present and those in prayer on their behalf, for a greater respect for ALL LIFE.
