The 2021 March for Life in Washington D.C. may have been “physically” cancelled but many mini-marches took place all over the country instead! Saint Benedict Center organized its own in nearby Worcester MA, the infamous city where “the pill” was invented. The event coincided with what would have been the D.C. March. About 200 supporters of the pro-life cause braved frigid temperatures to participate.
“The intention was to hold a prayerful and peaceful demonstration against Roe v. Wade,” reported Brother Thomas, MICM, “The marchers proceeded from Elm Street to Planned Parenthood and back again to the park while praying the rosary, singing hymns, and reciting various litanies. There was plenty of support from those passing by and all was peaceful from beginning to end.”
The prayerful march was led by Postulant Matthew Bacon carrying the processional crucifix. Prayers, litanies and hymns were led by Father Becker and Brother Peter Mary, MICM.
Students from Immaculate Heart of Mary School, St. Thomas Aquinas School in Warren, and members of the broader Catholic community participated as well as a number of local families and pro-lifers from other organizations. Now, more than ever, we cannot let the momentum to reverse Roe v. Wade stop.
