Saint Ignatius Loyola Parish Participates in the
Annual March for Life in Washington DC

It was an “absolutely beautiful day”, when on January 22, 2009, Deacon George A. Mais and more than thirty parishioners of Saint Ignatius Loyola Parish participated in the 36th Annual March for Life in Washington DC.  Upon arrival, the group was greeted by the Most Reverend William F. Murphy, Bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, and the Most Reverend John C. Dunne, Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, as they prepared to gather on the National Mall to rally alongside more than 250,000 people in opposition to the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision that legalized abortion and has thus claimed the lives of more than 50 million unborn babies.  After numerous speeches by various political leaders the group participated in a peaceful march around the Capital Building, ending by the Supreme Court building, while praying with those committed to preserving the sanctity of human life, from the moment of conception to the moment of natural death.
