Massachusetts March for Life set for October 1



BOSTON — Massachusetts Citizens for Life is once again sponsoring its annual “Massachusetts March for Life.” This year they are emphasizing bearing witness to the tragedy of abortion and for the sanctity of every human life. The other focus for the march is to raise money for Pro-Life charitable organizations across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The march is scheduled for Sunday, October 1 beginning at 2:30 p.m. from the Parkman Bandstand on the Boston Common. A pre-march rally will start at 1 p.m.

The Greater Fall River MCFL Chapter is sponsoring a bus to bring local walkers to the Boston Common for the march, so participants don’t need to worry about parking or the Boston traffic.

Round trip fare is just $5 for adults and $2 for youth ages 18 and under. Children ages five and under can attend free-of-charge.

Pickup times and locations are as follows:

— 11:45 a.m. from Holy Name School parking lot, corner of Stetston Street and President Avenue in Fall River, across from Truesdale Health, 1030 President Avenue (please arrive by 11:35 a.m.);

— 12 p.m. from the Taunton Galleria Park ‘n’ Ride at the Galleria Mall in Taunton (please arrive by 11:55 a.m.)

Forms for walkers to collect pledges are available on the MCFL website,

To reserve seats or for more information, please visit the website or call Paulette Martinville at 508-673-9757 or Liz Montigny at 781-521-3677.
