What is the Youth Rally and Mass for Life?
The Youth Rally and Mass for Life will be held virtually on January 29, 2021. We will offer live streaming on this website, beginning at 8:00 AM on Friday, January 29. The Youth Rally will officially begin at 8:30 AM. At 10:00 AM, we will transition to coverage of a Mass with Cardinal Wilton Gregory, live from the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle.
Join us in prayer that we as a nation may stop wandering in the wilderness of the culture of death and enter into “life in abundance” (John 10:10) through our faith in Jesus Christ and our proclamation of the Gospel of Life.
