From Helen MacMinn
This annual March for Life will begin with a Rally at 2:00 pm in the Auditorium of the Berks Catholic High School, located at 955 E. Wyomissing Blvd, Reading, Pa. (map).
At 3:00 pm we meet in the parking lot of Berks Catholic and organize with banners, signs, flags, the Baby Jesus and the TFP Bank leads us out the parking lot and past the Reading Hospital where they do abortions and then up to Penn Ave. in West Reading…there we have the police guide us down the street and over the Penn Street Bridge into Reading.
We march to the center square and then turn to go down to Planned Parenthood where we will hold a prayer vigil this year. Usually we just walk by and pray but this year we have a pastor leading a prayer service. Once this is done we walk about another block to Holy Rosary Parish where school buses will be provided to bring us back to Berks Catholic High School .
This year’s speakers are Georgette Forney of Silent No More and Stephanie Giles, Executive Director of Lifeline of Berks County.
We are asking for baby items to be given to our crisis pregnancy centers in Reading. T-shirts will be sold and pro-life organizations such as Students for Life will have tables with literature on their work.
This event is sponsored by the Reading March for Life
