March for Life Bus Trip

The 2015 March for Life will be held Thursday, January 22 in Washington, DC. The March commemorates the anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court decision that abolished all limitations on abortion across the United States.

A bus from Shelby County will depart immediately following our Candlelight Vigil on Wednesday, January 21 (7-8pm). The bus will travel through the night and arrive Thursday morning at the Catholic Rally and Youth Mass at the Armory in Washington, DC. Following the Mass, attendees will travel by Metro (subway) to the National Mall for the March for Life. After the March, travelers will take the Metro to Pentagon City Mall, where the bus will pick up for the return trip to Ohio.

Cost for the trip is $85, which includes all transportation (bus, Metro) but no meals. Tickets to the Youth Mass are provided free of charge. If you are interested in joining the bus trip, please contact Bonnie York at 937-526-4388. (This bus is for all except Lehman students, who will sign up separately through the school.) We anticipate a full bus, so please call Bonnie immediately to reserve your spot.

If our buses become full or if you are interested in attending the March on a different schedule, it may be possible to join another area RTL group's bus trip. We are working on gathering that information and will post it here as soon as it is available. 

Pro-Lifers Witness at Life Chain

About 100 local pro-lifers turned out for the annual Life Chain on Sunday, October 5. It was a beautiful witness to the dignity of all human life. Following the chain, we had a successful Open House, which gave us the opportunity to share the renovated thrift shop and visit with area pro-life friends.

Thank you to all who helped make the event so meaningful: Pastor Steve Chapman of Sidney Wesleyan Fellowship; Christy (Trisler) Peterson, who delivered her powerful speech; Elizabeth Barhorst, who represented RTL's membership committee; and all those who assisted with the Open House. (See more photos from the Life Chain.)
