March for Life 2019

There has never been a more important year to show D.C. just how active and alive the pro-life movement is in our country.  Despite what the media constantly portrays, pro-life Americans are making a difference in every state across this nation.  (And abortion advocates know it!)

The March for Life brings this important work together, in one city, as we pray, march, and make our voices known for the innocent preborn.

I Corinthians 15:58 says, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord.

Our nation is standing at a crossroads right now.  Through God’s mercy, we have two new Supreme Court judges who could bring about incredible change.  We have a President who doesn’t do everything in his power to defend abortion.  We have a Vice President who truly loves life.  God willing, there are some things that could truly change in this nation for the preborn.

But we, the Church, must press in.  We must remain steadfast and immovable.  In the midst of such possible change, the preborn still cannot speak up and ask for protection and personhood.  It’s up to us.

The March for Life gives us that much needed platform to speak out and stand firm.  Will you join us?

On January 17th & 18th, 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.  Let’s be the biggest voice we can in the city where our nation can decide to protect life.

We have procured a block of rooms at the Cambria DC for the nights of Jan 17th & 18th (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 $159 per night (plus tax).  ALSO: This year, the hotel is including 4 Complimentary Continental Breakfasts per room!

All reservations must be received by December 27th, 2018.  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.
