Pilgrimage for Life 2014

Over 20 American Association members joined pilgrimage co-chairs, Dr. Joseph Dutkowsky, KM, and Karen Dutkowsky, DM, for the American Association’s 2nd Annual Pilgrimage for Life on January 21st – 22nd, 2014.

Mark Bradford, President of the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation, U.S.A., began this pilgrimage with a speech on pro-life issues including the response to prenatal testing which diagnoses the child in utero with a disability and how we can offer support to the parents. Members concluded the first evening of this pilgrimage with the Prayer Vigil for Life: The National Rosary for Life, followed by Adoration with Holy Hours led by seminarians from across the country.

On January 22, 2014, American Association members joined the Federal Association for Mass and lunch before departing on the official March for Life on Constitution Avenue. Pilgrims marched from the Mall along Constitution Avenue to 1st Street, where they turned to pass the Supreme Court. They paused for a brief prayer together between the Supreme Court and the Capital Building before walking over to the Holy Rosary Church for a reception. All attendees of the 41st Annual March for Life were invited to attend the Rose dinner, an annual fundraiser for this March.
