Dear Parishioners of OLOP:
Attached is a message from Bishop Gregory regarding March for Life in Washington, DC. If any of you are planning to attend, there is a schedule attached to this email where you can meet up with other Maronites from the US. This is a beautiful testament for the dignity of life. If you have never participated in this before, I encourage you to if at all possible.
God bless you.
Dear Brother Priests, Deacons, Subdeacons, Consecrated Men and Women, and Lay Faithful:
We invite you to join us as we prayerfully gather with fellow Maronites from across the United States to march for the preborn, 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”
The Mayflower Hotel
1127 Connecticut Ave NW
Washington DC 20036
You may call the Mayflower Hotel and mention “Maronite Young Adults” Block to see if the discounted rate is still available.
Please note: Rooms should have been booked by January 2, 2023. The blocked room rates could potentially be available past this date if they are able to provide some (this will be determined case by case). Each person booking a room is responsible for their own room fees and is responsible for canceling if necessary, within the hotel’s allowable time period to avoid charges.
Please sign up with the google form, we will contact everyone attending a week or so before the March with any updates. Contact information is found below for any additional questions.
