March for Life 2018

In 2018, the March for Life will take place on Friday, January 19th.

In the midst of a culture obsessed with the next big trigger word, buzz word, or social justice hashtag, Jesus stands as the ONLY word that can bring life, love, and healing to our broken world.

As the old hymn says, “In Christ alone, my hope is found.”  That is why CEC For Life continues to invite you to stand as Christ incarnate and a voice for the preborn every January in Washington, DC.

The March for Life is more than just a gathering, more than a demonstration, it is the Church standing together in unity and in prayer, believing that God will end abortion in this nation.  That a culture of Life will prevail.  We go because we must go.  Because if not us, then who?

On January 18th & 19th, we invite you to join CEC For Life in our nation’s capitol as we once more dedicate ourselves (and our year) to saving the lives of preborn children.  To bring hope, to inspire hope, and to find strength in numbers!

We have procured a block of rooms at the Cambria DC for the nights of Jan 18th & 19th (Thurs & Fri).  In order to reserve a room, please call the hotel at 202.299.1188 and make your reservation under the group name “CECForLife.”  Rooms are $16o per night (plus tax).

All reservations must be received by December 26th, 2017.  However, rooms are limited, so please be sure to make your reservations as soon as possible.  Availability for the block is first come first serve.
