Pray, advocate and witness for life!
Earlier this year, nearly 7,000 people joined us for the first annual Virginia March for Life in Richmond. We are thankful so many of you attended and are pleased to announce the date of the second annual Virginia March for Life … February 13, 2020!
Extreme abortion expansion legislation – defeated in 2019 – is sure to return for more debate in 2020. Proposals to eliminate most restrictions on second and third trimester abortions, and even to make abortion a “fundamental right” under Virginia law, will likely be considered. So too will the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), the language of which has already been used to challenge and overturn pro-life laws in other states.
Will you come to Richmond to take a stand? Please join us for a day of prayer, advocacy and witness for life – featuring a Mass concelebrated by Bishop Burbidge and Bishop Knestout, visits to legislators’ offices, the Rally and the March. Save the date and stay tuned for more information!

In prayer and in public, your voices are urgently needed to bring Gospel values to bear on vital decisions being made by those who represent you.
