March for Life Chicago 2019

January 13  -  2 - 4 p.m.

Federal Plaza 50 W. Adams Street, Chicago

Join fellow parishioners and thousands of others from around the Midwest in attending March for Life Chicago. This event takes place each year in January near the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision, Roe vs. Wade, that legalized abortion in the United States in 1973. Thousands of people from diverse ethnic, social, and religious backgrounds come together and march in downtown Chicago, commemorating the many innocent lives lost after this decision. Through marching, we share a message of love for life, a hope to reclaim for our state and our nation the respect that all life deserves and promote a culture that values life, from the moment of conception until natural death. 

Marching together in hope, we call upon religious, civic, and community leaders to renew every effort to build a nation that affirms the authentic dignity of women, the gift of children, and a culture dedicated to protecting life at every stage of development. The March will begin and end at Federal Plaza. It will be approximately 1 mile in length and snow will be cleared.

St. Paul of the Cross is sponsoring a bus to take parishioners to and from the march. The cost is $10 per person and seating is limited. The bus will leave from the main parking lot of St. Paul of the Cross at 1 p.m.  For more information please contact Mary Jo DiRe or Cecelia Klein.
