PHOTOS: Send off for the 2019 Pilgrimage for Life

Adoration and Mass, Jan. 16, Cathedral of St. Joseph


About 270 pilgrims representing about 15 groups from throughout the Jefferson City diocese disembarked aboard five buses this morning for the National Mass and Prayer Vigil for Life and the 46th annual March for Life, both in Washington, D.C. Both events mark the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions that legalized abortion-on-demand throughout the United States. Since then, an estimated 60 million abortions have taken place in this country. (55 photos)
