Metropolitan Jonah to Lead Orthodox Marchers at January 24 March for Life

January 13, 2011  [, ]

Orthodox Christians everywhere — especially those within driving distance of the US capital — are being encouraged to bear witness to their faith at the annual March for Life on Monday, January 24, 2011.

As in years past, His Beatitude, Metropolitan Jonah expressed his desire to see as many youth and young adults as possible to join him in proclaiming that all life is indeed a gift from God.
The faithful are asked to gather by 12:30 p.m. under the “Orthodox Christians for Life” banner to the left of the stage at the Ellipse, between the Washington Monument and the national Mall. Metropolitan Jonah will be one of several speakers to address the public at the pre-March program.

At the conclusion of the March, Metropolitan Jonah will offer prayers for the victims of abortion.

On Sunday, January 23, the eve of the March, the faithful are encouraged to join Metropolitan Jonah for Vespers at Saint Nicholas Cathedral, 3500 Massachusetts Ave. NW, at 6:00 p.m. A reception will follow.

On the morning of the March, Metropolitan Jonah will preside at the celebration of the Divine Liturgy at the cathedral at 8:00 a.m.

Following the March, Metropolitan Jonah will attend the annual Rose Dinner at DC’s Hyatt Regency Hotel.

While additional details concerning the the Orthodox Christian witness at the March will be forthcoming, general information on the March may be found at
