Cardinal Justin Rigali, Archbishop of Philadelphia, will lead approximately five thousand people from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. on Monday, January 23, 2006. This date marks the 33rd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision to legalize abortion. Joining Cardinal Rigali will be seminarians from Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary, college and high school students and parishioners. More than 100 buses will transport participants to the event.

The group traveling from Philadelphia will meet at 12:00 noon on the corner of Constitution Avenue and 15th Street before marching to the U.S. Supreme Court.

As the Chairman-Elect of the Pro-Life Committee of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Cardinal Rigali will celebrate several Masses in Washington to pray for the sanctity of human life.
