Thank you to Adrienne Randall and Diane Stewart for these photos.
Mrs. Elizabeth Wurm sent this summary of the group’s trip to Washington D.C.
Once again this year St. Peter’s Parish was well represented at the March for Life! In its 42nd year, the March takes place annually in the hopes of overturning the Roe v. Wade decision. This year almost 200,000 people descended upon our nation’s Capitol to stand up in defense of life.
In addition to the march, participants were able to meet Bishop Thomas, had a reception with Rob Portman and Jim Jordan, took a tour of the Capitol Building and the Washington Monument along with some sightseeing opportunities. One of the highlights was when our own Jacob Randall took part in the wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider at Arlington National Cemetery.
Thank you to Kim Randall, Jacob Randall, Diane Stewart, Jacob Stewart, Beth Phillips, Claire Phillips, Larry Strawser, and Nathan Freshwater for going on the March this year. A special thank you to the Knights of Columbus Council #711 for sponsoring the trip and for the St. Peter’s Respect Life group for purchasing hats for the attendees.
