East Anglia group joins March for Life in London

A group from the Diocese of East Anglia travelled to London to join more than 5000 pro-life supporters to take part in this year’s March for Life on Saturday May 11.

This is the second year the March has taken place in London, starting at Westminster Church House and culminating in a festival style event in Parliament Square.

Groups from Peterborough, Walsingham (complete with the processional statue of Our Lady of Walsingham) and Ipswich attended, said diocesan pro-life representative, Sarah Ward: “All the pro-life groups and associations were represented and many speakers gave powerful testimonies about their personal stories or their work in the pro-life movement.  It really was a wonderful and joyful day, but the message of why we were there was not forgotten.

“The organisers, Ben and Sarah Thatcher, were very keen to encourage people to take the spirit of the March back to where they came from and continue to build the civilisation of love in their daily lives,” said Sarah.

If any readers would like to get more involved with the pro-life movement please contact the Marriage & Family Commission’s pro-life representative, Sarah Ward at sarahcampling@hotmail.com 

“If enough people are interested, we would like to organise a 40 Days for Life prayer, fasting and vigil campaign in the diocese,” said Sarah.
