March for Life News


Friday, January 27 
Bus Departs at 11:00am, Returns about 4:30

Thousands upon thousands of folks come from all over the country to march in defense of the sanctity of human life. It will be even more meaningful if you are there. As in the past, St. James will be sending a bus. It will leave St. James at 11:00am and return at about 4:30pm. To reserve a spot on the bus, please sign the sign-up sheet in the vestibule or send an email to Rich Hunter at or call 703-241-1424 during evenings (please include the number of people in your party).

Can’t March Personally?
Participate in March for Me with Bishop O’Connell Students!

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 participate. You are invited to participate in a special initiative to support the annual March for Life in Washington, DC.  On January 27, 2017, 250 students from Bishop O'Connell High School will march in support of life.

Students from Bishop O’Connell High School will be available after all the Masses on the weekend of January 21st and 22nd  to help you be represented by a student. Thank you for supporting and encouraging Bishop O’Connell students to march for life.
