2nd Annual Night for Life

Join us in preparation for the March for Life, as we invite Young Adults to pray with us at St. Charles for the victims of abortion and for a conversion of hearts and minds to embrace human life in all of its stages.

 

The event retains the structure of the popular weekly P3 (prayer, penance, pub) event at St. Charles, but we're bringing in members of the FOCUS Collective to lead us in praise and worship during adoration! Following a meditation and benediction, we will have a candlelight rosary procession to and from Clarendon Square, followed by live music and fellowship in the parish gym!
