St. Agnes Parishioners March in First Virginia March for Life
Earlier today, St. Agnes parishioners joined over 6,500 pro-lifers in the first-ever Virginia March for Life in Richmond, VA. The march, hosted by the March for Life, the Virginia Catholic Conference, the Family Foundation, and the Virginia Society for Human Life, began with a rally at the State Capitol at 11:00 am. Speakers included, Melissa Ohden, survivor of a saline infusion abortion; Ryan Bomberger, founder of The Radiance Foundation; Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life; Felicia Pricenor, Associate Director of the Virginia Catholic Conference; Olivia Gans Turner, President of the Virginia Society for Human Life; and Victoria Cobb, President of The Family Foundation. After the rally, supporters departed from the Capitol steps to peacefully march in defense of human life.
At the beginning of this momentous day, the Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of the Diocese of Arlington, celebrated the 7:00 am Mass at the Cathedral of Saint Thomas More in Arlington.
