Respect Life Month: Novena, Adoration, March in D.C.
Novena: 9 Days for Life One of the simplest ways our parish can unite during Respect Life Month is joining in prayer.
Praying a Novena is an extremely accessible, yet powerful way to pray for a specific intention. To participate in our parish-wide Novena for Life, all you need to do is pray the designated prayer once a day, for nine days in a row, starting January 14th, and ending January 22nd.

It’s time to continue putting the list together for the March for Life on Friday, January 18, 2019. If I already have you signed up for 2019 no need to respond, but I did want to touch base with my mailing list from past years. This year we have the St. Edward’s bus stopping at the St. Bridget access road by the Middle School for pick-up at 8:30 a.m. as an additional option. You would need to be at St. Bridget no later than 8:15 a.m. to leave time to check in. To reserve a seat on that bus, please contact bus captain Tony Hackenburg directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like spots reserved on the bus that departs from the Columbian Center 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.). This year, instead of emailing me, contact Darius, the bus captain for the Columbian Center bus, directly at email@example.com . Darius, please let us 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, in the past 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 15, 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.
Any questions, please let me know. Thanks and a Blessed Advent to you all.
