More than 4,000 young people and other pro-life advocates filled the D.C. Entertainment and Sports Arena before the March for Life on Jan. 20 for Life Fest, an event co-sponsored by the Sisters of Life and the Knights of Columbus.
Supreme Chaplain Archbishop William Lori celebrated Mass for a crowd consisting primarily of high school and college students from as far as Arizona, Kansas and Massachusetts, who also spent time in eucharistic adoration and had the opportunity to receive the sacrament of reconciliation. Before Mass, Sister Bethany Madonna of the Sisters of Life emceed a lineup of speakers and musical performances that included testimonies about adoption, healing and forgiveness after abortion, and the dignity of every human person.
The rally’s theme, “Because Love is the Answer,” highlighted the importance of seeing the pro-life cause as more than a legal battle.
