Below is the link for the 2021 March for Life on January 29. Unfortunately, there is no K of C or Diocesan bus transportation this year. So, if folks want to attend in-person, they will have to make private arrangements. If registering for updates, you will be provided information for virtual events such as the Rose Gala. If all else fails, I’m sure, as in past years, EWTN will be providing coverage all day and will also be televising the Masses from the Shrine, the Vigil the evening before around 6:00 pm and the Mass in the morning at 7:30 am. I will forward exact times when I have them. Here is the link:
Thanks for posting!
P.S. Also working on the possibility of a Respect Life Holy Hour on Tuesday, January 26, from 5:30-6:30 pm Please stay tuned

Please find attached and below an invitation to the upcoming Into the Breach meeting series starting this month on January 28th. I hope many of you are able to attend. Please let me know if you have any questions about this program, and if you are interested, just shoot me back an email letting me know you plan to attend. This flyer will be included in this week’s bulletin, but please feel free to forward this information to anyone else outside of the council you feel may be interested.
Knights of Columbus Council 5476 invites all Catholic men of St Bridget parish to join us at our monthly Into the Breach video series and discussion via ZOOM. Our first Zoom meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 28 at 7:00 pm. and will last approximately 45 to 60 minutes.
In the past two decades, 14 million Catholics nationwide and one in three Catholic men who have been baptized have left the faith. In the face of those losses, there is an enormous breach in the battle line of faith that is causing disruptions in the Church and wider society. As men we must enter into that breach. To step into the breach requires every man to have faith and take action. The Into the Breach series challenges men to seek greatness and to be heroically virtuous, to have a character marked by goodness and truth, strength and courage.
Each meeting focuses on one episode of a 12-episode video series found at: http://www.kofc.org/en/campaigns/into-the-breach.html. The 12 episodes are titled: Masculinity, Brotherhood, Leadership, Fatherhood, Family, Life, Prayer, Suffering, Sacramental Life, Spiritual Warfare, Evangelization, and The Cornerstone.
Monthly Into the Breach Zoom meetings will be held on the fourth Thursday of every month at 7:00 pm, unless otherwise advertised.
Will you march with us in Washington D.C. this year for the 2021 March for Life?
We know that giving public witness to the atrocity of abortion in the nation’s capital, just as we have for the past 47 years, is as important as ever—especially as we watch the most pro-abortion president in history take office just one week prior.
We are taking the necessary precautions to help ensure the safety of our marchers; however, we also know that many people will be unable to attend in person this year due to the pandemic.
For this reason, we want to make sure that everyone who cannot be with us in person is able to fully experience this year’s March for Life virtually and from their own homes, schools, or offices.
Please use the link below to register for the 2021 March for Life Virtual Coverage, and we will send access links to watch LIVE!
REGISTER HERE FOR VIRTUAL MARCH FOR LIFE COVERAGE If you will join us in person, we cannot wait to be with you! Our team has been working hard in conjunction with local law enforcement, and we are excited about the look and feel of this year’s march despite a challenging year. See you soon—whether it be virtually or in person!
