Report on the January 24, 2011 March for Life Trip
The Our Lady of the Angels Respect Life group cooperated with the New Jersey Right to Life Cape May County chapter to charter a 54-passenger motor coach to the recent March for Life in Washington, D. C. Because of the very cold weather forecast, we lost some passengers the last weekend. We ended up with 43 passengers on the bus. We had a very large contingent of students and parents from Cape Christian Academy. As in the past Father Steve was also on the bus.
This year many more members of Congress spoke to the crowd at the rally. Many of members were freshmen Congressmen/women, but the Majority Leader of the House and such consistent pro-life supporters as Congressman Chris Smith (NJ-4th district) and Congressman Scott Garrett (NJ-5th District) also spoke to the crowd. There were many Knights of Columbus banners in the walk, including the banner from Council 12184 at Our Lady of the Angels.
We are looking forward to next year already.
