Frequently Asked Questions:


How do I get tickets?

Visit Getting tickets on our website.


How do I prepare for the National March for Life?

Visit for information about travel into the city on the day of the March.  Remember the national March for Life is organized by a separate organization.  The Archdiocese of Washington is not responsible for the event or any of the content surrounding the march.


How do I prepare my youth?


Here are some great ideas:

  • Pray the rosary or prepare a prayer service for the bus ride
  • If you have a long bus ride, watch a prolife movie on the way
  • Spiritually adopt a baby before the Youth Rally
  • Ask a student who has attended before to give a brief witness on the impact of going to the Youth Rally and National March for Life
  • Stay involved year round!

How can a priest register to concelebrate Mass?


Concelebrant registration will begin in November once tickets have been allotted to your group and venues have been assigned.


Can you help me find a place to stay?
