Annual March for Life:
The March for Life is an annual demonstration that takes place in Washington, D.C. on the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion on demand. Pro-Life supporters from around the country gather in our nation's capital for lively rally followed by a march through the streets of Washington as a sign of solidarity to our nation's leaders supporting the effort to make abortion illegal in this country. The Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Pro-Life committee coordinates a trip to send parishioners to support this important demonstration. For more information, please contact .
Tomb of the Unborn Child
All are welcome to come and pray at the newly renovated Tomb of the Unborn Child on the church property. Finished in April of 2005, this space houses the remains of an aborted child. We encourage all to use this space to pray for an end to abortion and for healing for those who are suffering from the effects of abortion in their own lives.
LIFE CHAIN is a peaceful and prayerful public witness of pro-life Americans standing for our hour praying for our nation and for an end to abortion. It is a visual statement of solidarity by the Christian community that abortion kills children and that the Church supports the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception. Participants in the LIFE CHAIN hold signs with messages like ³Abortion Kills Children,² ³Adoption The Loving Option,² ³Abortion Hurts Women,² and ³Jesus Forgives & Heals.² Over 1,000 LIFE CHAINs are held in the USA on the first Sunday in October.
