We will open with a prayer rally and guest speaker Elisa Martinez, then we will begin our peaceful, prayerful March returning to Saint Mary’s at the end to close in prayer together. Please dress accordingly if you will be marching with us and if you are unable to march, please join us for the prayer rally and remain in the church with Father Jeff to pray until we return.
