Join your fellow parishioners marching behind our parish Pro-Life banner at the annual March for Life in Washington, DC on Friday, January 19. St. James will have a bus going to the March for Life, leaving St. James at 10:45am and returning at about 4:30pm. Please sign the sign-up sheet in the vestibule to reserve spots on the bus. Please wear something red to the march to help us stick together. If you have any questions, please contact Richard Hunter at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-241-1424.
Can’t March Personally? Have a Bishop O’Connell Student March for You!
The Bishop O’Connell PTO Spiritual Life Committee and the student Pro-Life Club have developed a unique program called "March for Me" in which students participate in the March for Life to support the sacredness of human life on behalf of those in the community who are unable to march. On January 19, students from Bishop O'Connell High School will march in support of life. If you would like a student to ‘march for you,’ students from Bishop O’Connell High School will be available after all the Masses on the weekend of January 13 and 14 to help you be represented by a student. Thank you for supporting and encouraging Bishop O’Connell students to march for life.
