St. Jerome Marches for Life
Once again St. Jerome Respect Life group traveled to Washington for the annual March for Life, held Friday, January 27th. This year the weather was dry but chilly as they attended Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception before the March.
St. Jerome alumni, Kevin Egan rejoined the group after several years absence. His family have been regular participants in the March for Life. “Going back definitely felt different. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to witness the increasing amounts of evil one sees present in the media and throughout the world and so to see everyone united over such a tremendous cause was both encouraging and awe inspiring.”
Parishioner Marcy Johns has only missed one March in 24 years. She said that this year’s turnout was by far the best she has ever seen.
