Today begins our March For Life 2012 journey with the Good Shepherd Youth!
We will be going to Mass at 11:00, and Adoration for Life begins right after Mass.
Adoration will go until 4:00, with the youth adoring in the hour between 3 and 4. There will be music and prayer led by our own youth, and Mathias.
Then, after benediction, we go over to the school for pizza and snacks. The parish is invited to the join us for the movie "Changing Sides", the story of Abby Johnson, the director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas.
After the movie Tim, Brendan, Paul and I will be coming home, and John will stay over at the school with youth, for the lock-in.
Everyone meets at the train at 4:20 in the morning and we all ride down to Union Station in DC.
The whole group will walk from Union Station to the MCI Center for a huge youth rally, with a Mass and music. Last year there were 20,000 kids, and a line waiting to get in.
After the rally we will walk over to the National Gallery, to wait for the March for Life to begin. This is a great time to meet people. Our kids will have their Cat in the Hat, hats on, so I will get lots of pictures!
Pray for a safe trip and many changing hearts.
