2011 Youth Rally and Mass for Life
Special thanks to everyone who joined us in praying for life at the 15th annual Youth Rally and Mass for Life, hosted by the Archdiocese of Washington on Monday, January 24, 2011. An audience of thousands of young Catholics from around the country enjoyed musical performances by Steve Angrisano, Ike Ndolo and Maddie Curtis at the Verizon Center. Thousands also enjoyed the music of Bob Rice and Sarah Hart at the DC Armory.
Mass at the Verizon Center was celebrated by His Eminence Donald Cardinal Wuerl with bishops and priests from around the nation. The homily, by Fr. Mark Ivany - Parochial Vicar, Church of the Little Flower in Bethesda, reminded us all to (in the words of St. Timothy) set “an example… in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity” in order to change our culture.
Mass at DC Armory was celebrated by His Eminence Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, also with bishops and priests from around the nation. The homily, by Fr. Patrick Riffle - Parochial Vicar of St. Peter's in Olney, reminded youth that they are called to proclaim Christ and "the best way that you as young person can really be a living witness to the Gospel of life is through living lives that are chaste and pure."
Message from Pope Benedict XVI to young people attending the Mass for Life
