For the fifth consecutive year, Bellingham Council will help support a bus to the annual March for Life in Olympia, which will be held on Tuesday, January 20. The bus will depart from the Assumption parking lot at 6:00am.
Sign-ups for the bus to the March for Life will be taken at Assumption and Sacred Heart parishes. To offset the cost of the charter, riders are asked to donate $25.
The first stop of the trip will be at St. Martin’s University in Lacey where we will attend the 9:30 Mass for Life, celebrated by Archbishop Peter Sartain and concelebrated by Bishop Eusebio Elizondo and about 20 priests. From there the bus will take marchers to the state capitol. On the steps of the capitol and Supreme Court building attendees will hear speeches of several legislators, clergymen, and others.
2015 marks 45 years since abortion was made legal (but not moral) in Washington, with the passage of Referendum 20. This state legalized abortion three years before Roe v. Wade. By attending the Olympia March for Life you can do your part in making it illegal again.
Sign up early to reserve your seat on the 50-passenger bus. Contact Brothers Joe St.Hilaire or Tim Adams for more information. Also, Tony Buchanan is taking sign-ups at Sacred Heart and Rachael Becker at the Newman Center.
