Respect Life Events
Respect Life Month: Novena, Adoration, March in D.C.
Posted on December 12, 2018 in: General News
Novena: 9 Days for Life
One of the simplest ways our parish can unite during Respect Life Month is joining in prayer. Praying a Novena is an extremely accessible, yet powerful way to pray for a specific intention. To participate in our parish-wide Novena for Life, all you need to do is pray the designated prayer once a day, for nine days in a row, starting January 14th, and ending January 22nd.

Respect Life Holy Hour
Spending time in front of our Lord in the Eucharist is a wonderful opportunity for quiet prayer and reflection. On January 15th at 6:30 p.m. we will have Exposition and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
March for Life
Looking to head to D.C. this year for the annual March for Life? It will be held on Friday, January 18th. There will be seats to reserve on one of two shuttle buses but spaces are limited (or you can drive separately). Logistics listed below:
The Saint Edward's bus will be stopping at the Saint Bridget access road by the Middle School for pick-up at 8:30 a.m. You would need to be at Saint Bridget no later than 8:15 a.m. to leave time to check in.

There will also be a bus that departs from the Columbian Center; people will need to meet at 7:45 a.m. for an 8 a.m. departure from the Pump Road location. You will then travel to the Pastoral Center to meet with the Southside bus, and depart DC at 4-4:30 p.m. To reserve a seat on this bus contact Darius, the captain for the Columbian Center bus, at email@example.com.
