March for Life on Friday, January 19, 2018

Greetings All,

  It’s time for me to continue putting the list together for the March for Life on Friday, January 19, 2018. If I already have you signed up for 2018 no need to respond, but I did want to touch base with my mailing list.  Please let me know if you would like a spot(s) reserved on the free bus transportation being provided by the K of C and the Richmond Diocese(ckoz654@aol.com)  We will follow the routine of past years as far as departure time, etc.( meeting at 7:45 a.m. for an 8 a.m. departure from the Pump Rd. location, travel to the Pastoral Center to meet with the Southside bus, and depart DC at 4-4:30 p.m.).  Darius, please let me know if you anticipate any substantive changes.  When signing up, please provide a mobile phone number.

 Please pass this information along to friends, parish groups, etc.  Please try to sign-up early, last year we had a waiting list and had to scramble to get people on other buses.

 Also, a Respect Life Holy Hour has been scheduled for January 16, 2018, @ 6:30 p.m. at St. Bridget Church.   The Holy Hour will be intended as a vigil of sorts for the March for Life and will include Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction.  Please make every effort to join the Church in prayer for the success of our pro-life efforts. 

 Thanks and a Blessed Advent to you all.

 Mike Kozak
