Prepare for the March

The annual March for Life commemorates the passage of Roe v. Wade and invites youth, young adults, and adults to march from the Mall to the Supreme Court building, singing with one voice the clarion call, "Choose Life."

The Mass and Rally for Life is a ticketed event. The only way to get tickets is to request them from your diocesan contact, which is CYM in the Diocese of Wilmington. (Ticket requests are no longer being accepted.)

ATTENTION YOUNG ADULTS

Curriculum Materials

Please consider using some of these curriculum materials as you prepare young people for the March for Life or simply use them as resources for conversations you have at home about the Church's teaching on the sanctity of human life at all stages.

Youth Ministry Access has several ready-to-go sessions for high school students. In searching the YMA archives, we found three that we think will work well for preparing your young people for the March for Life:

The following movies have pro-life themes and can be shown (in full or in clips) to introduce a discussion around these themes. Discussion guides are listed below.

Youth Rally and Mass Information and Ticket Request

The deadline to request tickets for anyone traveling from the Diocese of Wilmington who wants to attend the Mass and Rally for Life is November 5, 2018. This is a firm deadline date.

All groups must obtain their tickets through a diocesan delegation leader (in Wilmington's case, that's CYM).

To request tickets for your parish or school, please complete the ticket request button above.  Do not overestimate the numbers in your group.  In an effort to allow as many youth as possible from our diocese to attend, please be as accurate as possible with your request.

The 2019 Youth Rally and Mass for Life will again be hosted at a single location, the Capital One Arena, previously known as the Verizon Center (located at 601 F Street NW). The doors will open at 6:15 a.m., and the Youth Rally will begin at 6:45 a.m. All ticket holders are to be inside or in line no later than 7:00 a.m.
