Gospel of Life

2019 March for Life Trip Preregistration

The Diocesan Gospel of Life Committee has under consideration an adults only (no minors) trip to the 2019 March for Life in Washington DC.  The 2019 March will occur on Friday, January 18, 2019.  Travel would be by bus, leaving from the rear parking lot of St. Stephen Cathedral Church in Owensboro at 8:00 PM on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 and returning on either the late evening of January 19, or early morning hours of January 20, 2019.

The group would spend two nights (January 17 and 18, 2019) at the Renaissance Washington DC Downtown Hotel. (The 2018 room rate was $230.75 per night and may likely increase for 2019.  Rooms can accommodate up to four persons so as to split the individual’s cost of staying for two nights.) The estimated cost to attend this event is $395 per person, based on two to three people sharing each room cost.

The Committee welcomes your interest in joining this group.  To preregister, please complete this information sheet and mail it to Richard Murphy, 600 Locust St., Owensboro, KY, 42301, along with a $50 preregistration fee by September 14, 2018.  Note: There is a 40 person minimum threshold for those going on this trip.  If this threshold is not reached, the trip will not go forward, and those that have preregistered will receive their $50 deposit back.

Committee Goals: 2016-19

Mission: The Diocesan Gospel of Life Committee will serve as a resource, advise, communicate and encourage the implementation of the National Catholic Bishops’ pastoral plan for promoting and teaching the Gospel of Life.
