The Office of Faith, Family, and Discipleship sponsors a youth pilgrimage to the March for Life in Washington, DC, each January. The March for Life began as a small demonstration and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world. The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since 1973 is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, abortion.
Our annual pilgrimage is open to youth in eighth through twelfth grade and their adult chaperones. All chaperones must have their required PA clearances.
The youth pilgrimage includes the Life Is Very Good evening rally at the Eagle Bank Arena on the campus of George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., as well as the Life is Very Good Mass on Friday morning at the Eagle Bank Arena in Fairfax, VA.
For adults wanting to learn more about the March for Life and the Pro-Life Movement, visit our Advocacy for Life page.
