St. Cecilia Photo Album

Right to Life March 2014
19-23 January 2014

Here are photographs from the March for Life Pilgrimage taken during a trip to Washington D.C. from  January 19-23. 2014.  Eighten youth and six adults participated in the march up Constitution Avenue to the U.S. Supreme Court on the 41st Anniversary of Roe vs. Wade.  After a 14 hour bus trip the pilgrims hoteled in Bethesda, Maryland.  On the day they arrived they visited Arlington Cemetery.  The following day was spent touring monuments along the National Mall.

The trip was a spritual event also.  Days began with Morning Prayer and ended with Evening Prayers.  A Mass was held each day, including one celebrated by Diocese of Springfield in Illinois Bishop Thomas Paprocki just prior to the march at St. Peters Catholic Church (a stone's throw from the U.S. Capital Building). Chaplets of Divine Mercy and the Rosary Prayers were recited during the drive to and from Washington.

Due to a severe mid-winter storm, temperatures dropped down into the teens (with windchill in the single digits) on the day of the march.  The temperatures did not deter the youth group as well as tens of thousands of other marchers though.  If anything, it strengthened their resolve to speak out on the sancity of the life of the unborn as well as for human life in all its stages.
