29/12/2011

Orthodox Christians everywhere — especially those within driving distance of the US capital — are encouraged to bear witness to their faith at the annual March for Life Monday, January 23, 2012.

As in years past, His Beatitude, Metropolitan Jonah, will speak at the pre-March program and offer prayers for the victims of abortion at the conclusion of the March. He will also attend the annual Rose Dinner.

Other members of the Orthodox Church in America’s Holy Synod of Bishops also are expected to attend.

Marchers are asked to gather at noon under the “Orthodox Christians for Life” banner on the National Mall, west of Eighth Street near the Smithsonian Castle. After the rally, marchers will procede up Constitution Avenue to the US Supreme Court, where a Memorial will be celebrated for the victims of abortion.

While additional details concerning the the Orthodox Christian witness at the March will be posted as received, general information on the March may be found at the March For Life’s website.
