BURLINGTON MARCH FOR LIFE
Burlington March for Life is an annual, local opportunity to march in unity with those also marching in D.C. The annual March for Life is to remind us of the 1973 ruling by Supreme Court to legalize abortion, making it available on demand in all 50 states. All are welcome to march in peaceful, prayerful protest of this 45 year old decision and celebrate many lives saved from Respect Life efforts over the years.
We open in prayer at 5:00 p.m. at IHM, march to the Burlington Courthouse, where we will gather in the newly remodeled historic building (once the Circuit Courtroom) for warmth, fellowship, refreshments and opportunity to hear State Representative and Senate updates of life issues in Kentucky. Also, you’ll hear inspiration to keep us inspired in our dedication to the unborn and how you can get involved locally to support All Life.
*This is an ecumenical event and ALL are welcome to join us. Please spread the word so we can come together
in unity, showing Northern Kentucky and others that we
care for the unborn.*
*For those unable to march, you’re welcome to meet in the Historic Courthouse for fellowship, prayer and learning while you wait for the marchers to join you.
RSVP is not required but it is helpful in planning for refreshments. RSVP and follow updates at https://www.facebook.com/events/149638125804026/.
Help is needed: Please contact Amy Ritchie at aritchie@ihm-ky.org to volunteer.
