2011 March for Life
They also travelled across the street for a Vigil Mass prior to the March in the chapel of the Jeanne Jugan Residence.
A few years ago, a youth Mass was initiated for the day of the march. This youth Mass has been held at the Verizon Center, which is a large convention center in Washington. This year, they signed up participants online, but while so many people tried to sign up we still received our tickets
The Verizon Center event was part pep rally, part rock concert, with entire sections of worshipers standing up to cheer wildly for their local leaders as the names of bishops and archbishops on the platform were announced.
