Contact:People for Life
Join us for the Erie March for Life on January 12. Invest an hour because entire lifetimes are at stake. Be at the Gazebo in Perry Square by 10:45 a.m. The March will begin promptly at 11 a.m.
Signs will be available, but feel free to bring you own homemade signs with positive pro-life messages. (People for Life, however, reserves the right to exclude messages that do not reflect the purpose and spirit of the March.)
Dress for winter weather and wear warm, non-slip footwear. Beware of icy patches on the streets and sidewalks.
The March will proceed west from Perry Square on 6th St., south on Sassafras, east on 10th St., north on State, and back to the Perry Square Gazebo, where the March will conclude with a brief, interfaith memorial service.
The memorial service will be jointly conducted by Rev. David Bousquet, Pastor of Cranesville Bible Church, and Rev. Jason Feigh, Parochial Vicar at Our Lady of Peace Church. Both leaders are active supporters of the right to life. Pastor Bousquet’s church is always well-represented on our March for Life Bus Trip. Father Jason takes students to the DC March for Life from Our Lady of Peace Church and School.
Those who are able to walk should do so, but anyone who would be unable to go the distance may join the motorcade that will follow the marchers. The motorcade will be assembled on S. Park Row between State and Peach Streets. Vehicles that will be in the motorcade should arrive at Perry Square between 10:30 a.m. and 10:45 with their four-way flashers on. Drivers should watch for directions from the parade marshals.
Please support the Erie March for Life. In the face of such a huge national tragedy as government sponsored abortion, weighty arguments, lofty words, and stirring rhetoric are not enough. Change begins and justice prevails when good people are willing to go public with their deeply held convictions.
