Our Formation team – Sr. Maria Therese (vocation director), Sr. Lois Ann (Postulant director), our two Postulants , Sr. Cathie and Sr. Heather, along with Sr. Jean- attended the 39th March for Life in Washington DC last January 23, 2012. The Sisters joined other marchers from local parishes. It was an exceptional experience described by the participants as being AWESOME! “It was so wonderful to see many thousands of people come to lend their support in the March for Life. The marchers were everywhere! The day was somewhat rainy but it did not stop the marchers who covered Washington in a rainbow of umbrellas, rain gear and sunny spirits.” reported Sr. Lois. Fr. Frank Pavone was the keynote speaker at a memorial service for the innocent victims of abortion at the Capitol. After the memorial service an estimated 400,000 marchers proceeded to make their way to the Supreme Court.
