March for Life

Apr 25, 2019 1:25:49 PM

 The 12th Annual March for Life will be held on Thursday, May 9, 2019. Mass will be celebrated at 12 noon with Archbishop Miller presiding at St. Patrick’s Church, 2060 Haultain Street, and Bishop Gary Gordon  presiding at St. Andrew’s Cathedral. 

The March begins at 1:45 p.m. from Victoria City Hall, at Centennial Square, and will proceed down Government Street to the BC Legislature for a Rally for Life at 2:15 p.m. 

This opportunity to walk together in solidarity is of profound importance in our time when euthanasia, assisted suicide, and abortion have become standard practices and accepted in the social and moral fabric of Canadian society. These increasingly acceptable social mores erode the sanctity of life that threatens not only human life itself but the freedom of conscience and religion in Canada, both of which are listed in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It is vitally important that we let our own voice be heard prophetically to all who would silence our cry for the respect and the preservation of life, especially on behalf of the weak and the vulnerable of our society. 

Please note that the Pastoral Centre will be closed from 11:30 am on Thursday, May 9, 2019 to allow our staff to participate. I encourage you to close your parish offices to join me to march in solidarity for the preservation of the right and freedom to celebrate and honour the sanctity of life in the 12th Annual March for Life.
