MARCH FOR LIFE


IN HARRISBURG, PA


Monday, September 19, 2022



The first annual PA March for Life was held on September 27, 2021, with great success.  Bishop Kulick and Father Dan Carr led over 150 pilgrims from our diocese to march around the Capitol building in support of the right to life in our state.

      A number of our congresspersons then hosted a reception for us in the Capitol, where we had a chance to meet them and talk with them. 

The Diocese of Greensburg will again attend the Pennsylvania March for Life on Monday, September 19th in Harrisburg. Bus transportation will be provided from fourteen locations around the Diocese. A free-will offering will be taken on each bus to help defray costs.

Participants will:
  • Attend a rally 
  • March around the Capitol
  • Attend Mass at St. Patrick Cathedral
  • Join local elected officials for a reception in the Capitol.

After a virtual march was held in 2021, we went back in person on January 21, 2022. Bishop Kulick and Father Dan Carr celebrated Mass at the National Basilica and marched in the cold with many pilgrims from our diocese.  We are planning to march again next year on January 20, 2023.

m4llogo.gifMarch For Life
The March for Life began as a small demonstration and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. In January of 1974, thousands of pro-lifers participated in the first March for Life to stand up against abortion. An inspiring rally was held as Members of Congress announced pro-life legislation and expressed their support for the pro-life cause. Since then, many more individuals have traditionally marched for the legal protection of unborn children and for loving support for suffering women.

​ Father Dan Carr speaks about the phrase “from the moment of conception until natural death”, where it came from, and what it means for us as Catholics.
