Hundreds from the Diocese of Springfield journey to our nation’s capital to show their support for pro life.
Matthew Warbington, a freshman at Holyoke Catholic High School in Chicopee was one many from his school who took an overnight bus to DC to show support for life.
Matthew, who is a regular altar server on the Chalice of Salvation Mass, said he was impressed by his trip and shared some of his thoughts and photos.
He described the rally at the Verizon Center and DC Armory as amazing. “There was a lot of spirit in the building. The music was awesome and the people speaking had very powerful speeches about pro life,” he said.
He added, “The Mass was very nice and well done. There were a lot of cardinals, bishops, priests and deacons from around the United States. There was even one from Australia.”
“The March for Life, itself, was a great expereince,” said Matthew. “In the mall I heard many people from Congress talk about why they are pro life. Just about everyone had signs and shouted chants. The whole day was amazing!”
