Dear Parishioners of OLOP:
Attached you will find information for the ProLife March that is held every year in Washington, DC, along with a letter from Bishop Greogory. I hope many of you will be able to attend.
Dear Brother Priests, Deacons, Subdeacons, Consecrated Men and Women, and Lay Faithful:
It’s that wonderful time of year where we anticipate the birth of our Lord Jesus and also prepare for the March for Life. We invite you to join us as we gather with fellow Maronites from across the United States to march for the unborn, and to witness to the sanctity and dignity of human life from the womb to the tomb. The 2024 March for Life will take place on Friday January 19th in Washington, DC.
To encourage more of our people to attend we have reserved a block of rooms at a discounted rate at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington DC. Please see the information below. More details and a schedule for the weekend have been attached to this email along with a sign-up sheet if you’re interested in attending with our Maronite group.
I hope you can share this information in the coming weeks so that a good number of our youth and young adults, children and families can join us as we march together as “Maronites for Life.”
