March for Life

For 40 years, the St. Louis Archdiocese has been leading the charge to protect the dignity of unborn human life, starting as the first diocese in the nation to have a committee dedicated to pro-life issues. And as the nation marks the 40th anniversary this year of the Roe vs. Wade decision to legalize abortion virtually on demand in this country, a young generation continues to grow and show how they are a generation for life.

Approximately 1,600 eighth-graders, high schoolers and young adults from the archdiocese kicked off their journey to Washington, D.C., for the March for Life with an event at Sacred Heart Parish in Valley Park Jan. 23. They are part of the Generation Life pilgrimage, sponsored by the archdiocesan Catholic Youth Apostolate. Approximately 3,000 people from all over the archdiocese are expected to attend the March, which will take place Friday, Jan. 25. Read More


As we march for life at our nation's capitol on the 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade, let us remember not only the lives lost, but also the lives saved because of our commitment to life.
