March for Life 2018
“Let your light so shine before men…and glorify your Father in Heaven.”  Matthews 5:16

A March for Life bus trip is planned for Friday, January 19, 2018!  This will be the second pilgrimage organized by the Savannah Deanery Respect Life Ministry to Atlanta, GA on the anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade.  Since Nellie Gray organized the first march for Life in Washington in 1974, the number of marches has increased to hundreds of rallies in January all over the country.  These marches give thousands of life-affirming leaders, clergy and citizens a chance to speak up for the defenseless, so that one day each may stand before God and say, “I did speak out; I was not silent in the face of the wanton killing of innocents.”

Our pilgrimage will begin at 7:00 AM in the parking lot off of I-16 at Dean Forest (307) and Town Center Rd. (directly across from the entry gate to Southbridge).  Parking is free.  Prayer, scripture reading, singing and other activities are planned on the way to and from our state capital. Upon arrival in downtown Atlanta, we will visit a local parish and eat lunch.  At 1:00 PM, we will take part in a roadside witness until 2:00 PM.  Around 2:30 PM our bus will load for the return trip to Savannah.  Arrival time back at the point of departure will be approximately 6:30 PM.

Due to the generosity of our sponsoring Deanery Churches and the Knights of Columbus, the cost of the bus trip is FREE!  (Food and incidentals will be the resistibility of each pilgrim, as well as any tip for the bus driver.)

A reservation form (below) is required so that reservations do not exceed seats (56) on the bus.  ALL RESERVATIONS SHOULD BE SUBMITTED TO THE CATHEDRAL OF ST JOHN THE BAPTIST CHURCH OFFICE (222 E. Harris Street, Savannah, GA 31401), care of Gretchen Reese, by January 6.  Once the bus is full, remaining names will be placed on a waiting list in the order received and notified should space become available.  Please book as soon as possible.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
