FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WATERTOWN, MA (January 25, 2012) – Coverage from the Archdiocese of Boston’s Pilgrimage to March for Life Set to Appear on the CatholicTV® Network
Coverage of the 480 youth and young adults from the Archdiocese of Boston that joined Cardinal Seán O'Malley for the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. will appear on the CatholicTV Network. Coverage will be able on the CatholicTV® Network's Weekly News Magazine Show, ClearVoice™ and the network’s nationally broadcasted live talk show; This is the Day.
The March marks the anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in the United States. Groups from 97 dioceses around the country, including the Archdiocese of Boston, and as far away as the Virgin Islands and Australia were represented at the march.
On January 22, 2012 ten buses left the Pastoral Center and transported the young people to the pro-life pilgrimage. Participating youth and young adults experienced daily Mass, daily rosary and chaplet of Divine Mercy. On the morning of January 23, 2012 the day of the march itself, Cardinal O'Malley, O.FM. Capp celebrated Mass with all Boston pilgrims at the Capuchin-run Shrine of the Sacred Heart in Washington. The Cardinal has attended every March for Life at the nation’s capital.
Father Matt Williams, director of the Office for the New Evangelization of Youth and Young Adults for the Archdiocese of Boston took time to speak with the Boston Pilot about the pilgrimage. “We are overjoyed this year at the tremendous response, and as a result of that the tremendous advocacy amongst our parishes and schools to bring young people.”
“The leaders, and the pastors, and the campus ministers have done a phenomenal job in advocating for this march, and helping young people come to be involved in issues like this," he added.
