The Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry made the difficult decision to cancel our annual pilgrimage to Washington, DC for the March for Life.
In the case that you were planning to attend the March for Life separate from the Youth and Young Adult Ministry Office, we would invite you to reconsider your plans. However, if you do decide to go, do not forget to turn in your paperwork to the Safe Environment Office.
Washington, DC is not the only way that we are able to be an advocate for the unborn. Instead, we invite you to consider participating in several of the options described below.
St Augustine March for Life – January 16, 2021
This offering is not as far away as DC, nor is it as expensive. This trip can be done in one day, though there are options on Friday and Sunday that would allow for a beautiful and prayerful weekend experience.

Our office is not planning a Diocesan pilgrimage to St Augustine for the March for Life, but we are here to assist you in your planning! Mike Buckler will be in attendance to connect with our parishes and schools during the day. If you are considering attending or already have your plans, please email Mike to let him know.

Pro-Life Mass with Bishop Parkes
In solidarity with other dioceses across the United States, our diocese will be offering a pro-life Mass with Bishop Parkes on Friday January 22nd at 10:00 AM at the Cathedral of St Jude. (The anniversary of Roe vs. Wade).
In order to maintain appropriate distancing, this Mass is a ticketed event. Space is limited. Our first priority is to our Catholic high schools, but we will have opportunities for others to join us. Please contact Ryan at RMP@dosp.org to reserve your space.
This Mass will be live streamed on the diocesan website and will be promoted nationally by the USCCB.
Our livestreamed Mass with Bishop Gregory Parkes can be found on our website at https://www.dosp.org/livestream/ and on our Facebook and YouTube pages: https://facebook.com/diostpete and https://youtube.com/dioceseofstpete.
