st joan of arc chapelMILWAUKEE — Campus Ministry and Marquette for Life are sponsoring events on the Marquette University campus in honor of March for Life 2020, Wednesday, Jan. 22, and Friday, Jan. 24.

The organizations are hosting Masses at noon and 10 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 22, to commemorate the National Day of Prayer for Unborn Children, at St. Joan of Arc Chapel. The services will focus on prayers for unborn children, women experiencing crisis pregnancies and their partners, and for the development of greater means of support in our institutions and communities.

A third Mass in recognition of March for Life Day will be held at noon Friday, Jan. 24, at St. Joan of Arc Chapel. At the service, Marquette community members will pray in solidarity with all those participating in the annual event.  

The March for Life is an annual rally started in 1974, peacefully protesting both the practice and legality of abortions, and fighting for the rights of the unborn. March for Life 2020 — the national event — will be held in Washington, D.C., Friday, Jan. 24.
