March for Life Pilgrimage, Washington, DC

January 21-22, 2015
Accepting Reservations Now!

Join the Buffalo Diocese and hundreds of thousands of Catholics and others in solidarity for a pilgrimage of public witness, penance, and prayer for all those victimized by the 1973 Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion, and for the conversion of those who misguidedly perpetuate it.  Catholics and all people of good will shall gather together to pray and publicly intercede on behalf of the unborn, their parents, families, our communities, nation and our leaders, that this prayerful presence may open hearts, minds and souls to the fullness of the Gospel of Life in our lives and laws, healing the wounds of abortion.   We look forward once again to a unified and powerful stand against the Roe v. Wade decision!

 » » » The Most Reverend Richard J. Malone, Th. D., Bishop of Buffalo, will be attending the Mass at

the Verizon Center in Washington on January 22, 2015 with Youth Groups from Buffalo.

Keynote Speaker:  Vicki Thorn, foundress of Project Rachel and the executive director of the
National Office of Post-Abortion Reconciliation & Healing located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin 

Buses: will depart on the morning of Wednesday, January 21, 2015 from various locations


         Please note that the March for Life is not a guided tour. During the March, the Diocese of Buffalo holds a large                banner in hopes of keeping our group together; however, folks tend to get separated as there are thousands of              Marchers. The use of cell phones and a buddy system is highly encouraged during this trip for safety                             purposes and in order to keep in constant communication with each other.  

Your cooperation and attention to this is greatly appreciated. 


For more details and information visit or call (716) 847-2205.
