WASHINGTON, D.C. — Hundreds of people from the Archdiocese of Dubuque took part in the events surrounding this year’s National March for Life in Washington, D.C.
A Vigil Mass for Catholics was held Jan. 26 at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. On Jan. 27, a rally and march were held on the National Mall, starting with speakers around the Washington Monument and passing by the Capitol Building and Supreme Court. Hundreds of thousands march each year to commemorate the Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States.
