Sat. 01/20/18: North Texas March for Life with local troops

January 20, 2018

Free event
No registration required
Class A uniforms.  If you do not have one, try to at least wear a TSG t-shirt.
Family members are invited and encouraged to march with us.
I attached the announcement from Mater Dei, which says it all better than I would. Please read below.
I will be riding the bus.  We will meet with other local troops at the beginning of the march.  For those of you who will drive there, consider the option to drop off your group and go park at the courthouse.  That will save your family members the walk back at the end.  Captain O’Flaherty will do just that and offered to help shuttling people if needed.
We will have our banners and for those who will not already be in the cathedral for Mass, we will gather outside of the cathedral entrance on the bell tower side, and will hopefully be able to join in with the other troops as the procession exits.
We have a fantastic opportunity to speak up for the unborn.  Please ensure that everyone in you know is aware of this beautiful and timely event.
We have reserved 3 buses for transportation from Mater Dei to the March for Life.Buses will leave Mater Dei at 12 noon and return by 4pm, minors must be accompanied by an adult.
Please sign-up to ride the bus.

The dead line to Sign-up is Friday, Jan.12th by noon.

We will have a picnic lunch in the parish hall starting about 11am.  You must eat before boarding the bus, snacks and water for small ones are your responsibility.

This is a pilgrimage and also a rosary procession to and from downtown.

Bring your rosaries, wear walking shoes.   We will carry Mater Dei banners. Personally made signs are also welcome.
If anyone wishes to attend without joining us on the bus, you may be able to find us, because we will have our MATER DEI BANNERS.  Don’t forget that you represent your parish and make known to others the existence of the traditional liturgy in Dallas.  Be prepared to evangelize all those you meet on the value of the Tridentine Rite.  We don’t often speak in Latin, but when we do, it is EXTRAORDINARY!

Buses will be cancelled unless we have the sign up this week.  We are past the deadline for complete refund, but we will get  a partial refund only, if all three buses are not used. As we gear up for the largest pro-life event in the state, the 15th Annual N TX March for Life, we are excited to announce a change in route that will bring exposure to the active, diverse North Texas pro-life organizations.
Your public witness is CRITICAL!
Most importantly, the March is happening the same day as the Dallas Women’s March. That’s right! The same march that decidedly excluded Pro-Life Women’s groups in their march on Washington.

With abortion advocates marching and bankrolling the Women’s March, it’s important that we show who really stands for and with #HER.

The North Texas March for Life has always been about empowering women to embrace life even in the midst of uncertainty. It is about community, family, charity and hope.

So make plans to join us for this year’s March, advertise the event at your church, among your friends and on your social media. See below for our event flier and parking information.
