March for Life Preparations Under Way

Mary Loftus and Joe and Liz O'Brien receive bags of those "famous green scarves" from Sister of Life Dorothy Guadalupe.

The annual March for Life is set for Monday, January 23, only a little more than a week away, and the Rockland Right to Life Committee is busy preparing for a successful trip.

The buses to Washington have been chartered, reservations are coming in, and the banners that we’ll carry have been checked to make sure they’re in good shape.

We’ve laid in a supply of 150 of the “famous green scarves” for the Rockland marchers. That’s what those curious green bags contain in the photo. Provided by the Sisters of Life, these scarves are a way to maintain to a spirit of unity and solidarity as well as keep our marchers warm and toasty. The scarves are worn by everyone coming from the Archdiocese of New York and are a great way to identify fellow New Yorkers in the crowd. The scarves are green to honor St. Patrick, of course.

If you would like to experience this event for yourself, there are still seats available on the bus and we’d love to have you come along! Veterans of the March wouldn’t miss it and come back year after year. It’s a great day! For more information, please click here.
