Philly March for Life
The Pro-life Union of Greater Philadelphia held the 2nd Annual March for Life in Center City Philadelphia on Saturday, March 26th, 2022. The day began with Roman Catholic Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul with Fr. Dennis Gill as the presider of the Mass.
After the Mass, an ecumenical prayer service was held on the side lawn of the Cathedral which included praise and worship. More than 1,000 people marched from the Cathedral to an abortion facility nearby to pray together for an end to abortion. The day concluded with a rally at Independence Hall in Center City where speakers such as Dr. Monique Ruberu, pro-life OB-GYN, Pastor Herb Lusk III, Michael Geer, President and CEO of the Family Institute, Pete DeMaio, President of Pennsylvanians for Human Life, Fr. Christopher Walsh, Pastor of Saint Raymond of Penafort and Chairperson of the Pro-life Union, Toni McFadden, Pro-life Activist and Speaker, Sister Maeve, Sisters of Life, and headline speaker Kristan Hawkins, National Director of Students for Life. Those who attended the rally were blessed to hear awesome testimonies for life.
