MONROE — On Saturday, Oct. 26, families, adults, and teens are invited to participate in the first-ever Monroe March for Life, which has been organized by the Monroe Vicariate Evangelization Committee. 

The march will begin at 9 a.m. at St. Mary Parish in Monroe and proceed to five different locations throughout the downtown district, ending at approximately noon. 

At each stop, a local speaker will deliver a pro-life speech. Petitions to end the practice of dismemberment abortion in the state of Michigan will be made available to sign. Marchers are encouraged to wear blue or pink to memorialize all the boys and girls’ lives lost to abortion. 

Marchers are also encouraged to bring diapers, formula, or other baby-related items to support pro-life organizations in the area. Homemade signs that contain peaceful, non-graphic images and messages are permitted.
