It’s time to continue putting the list together for the March for Life on Friday, January 24, 2020.
This year we will again 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. Tony can also be contacted by phone or text at 804-339-0267.
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, please contact Darius, the bus captain for the Columbian Center bus, directly at email@example.com . Darius can also be contacted at 804-740-9633 (home). Darius, please let us know if you anticipate any substantive changes.
When signing up, please provide a mobile phone number and email address.
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 21, 2020, at St. Bridget Church. The tentative start time is 5:30 p.m. Please stay tuned for further details, but save the date. 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 Adoration. 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.
