March for Life 2016

The National March for Life will be held in Ottawa on Thursday, May 12, 2016, and across the country there will be six provincial marches (click here for a listing).

For the second year, Reformed Prayer Services will be held in both Victoria, prior to the provincial march in BC, and in Ottawa, prior to the national march. We hope to see you at one of these prayer services, details are below.

Following each prayer service there will be bagged lunches for all those who pre-register. After the prayer service, head to the provincial Legislature (Victoria) or Parliament Hill (Ottawa) to join with thousands more in speaking up for the most vulnerable in our society.
