The Sisters of Life and the Knights of Columbus will be hosting an all-new “Life Fest” rally on the morning of the 2023 March for Life to inspire the next generation in a “new spirituality of love and life,” according to a press release.
Life Fest will take place on the morning of the March for Life, from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m., on Jan. 20, at Washington D.C.’s Entertainment and Sports Arena.
“In the wake of the recent Dobbs decision, we see a profound opportunity to build the culture of life in a new way,” Sister Maris Stella, S.V., said in the press release.
The rally’s theme, “Because love is the answer,” highlights a Catholic, pro-life response to an increased need to support vulnerable women after the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade allowed many states to restrict or ban abortion.
“As Sisters of Life, we’ve been walking with women facing unexpected pregnancies for the past 30 years and we see the miracles born of hope,” Sister Agnus Dei of the Sisters of Life, told CNA. “We see that when a woman is loved and supported, she can do anything, she can make that choice for life.”
The sisters and Knights hope that Life Fest, which will feature live music and speakers as well as Mass and adoration, will move attendees to build a new culture of life, founded on a spirituality that embraces “every human life as a gift.”
