The March for Life is in Washington DC on Friday January 18, 2019. Each year, Iowans For LIFE (IFL) secures several buses to take pro-life Iowans to the March For Life in Washington DC. The 2019 March, January 17-20, is an important opportunity to have your voice heard regarding respect for all life. You can walk in the national March for Life, attend the annual Catholic Youth Rally and Mass for Life and sightsee in the nation's capital.  IFL encourages groups and individuals to contact them about the bus trip and fundraising assistance at (515) 255-4113 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Also, please pray for the Pro-Life Committee's intentions:

1. For all mothers who have chosen Life, may they find joy, strength, and the love of God through their children.

2. For pregnant women, may God give them strength, health and peace.

3. For all who are practicing natural family planning that their faith and their family lives would be a witness to others of God's love and that they would continue to place their trust in God and conform their wills to God's will for them.

4. For the St. Wenceslaus Knights of Columbus and all of their pro-life initiatives, including their efforts toward spreading the word about true women’s healthcare through training practitioners in NaPro technology, and through support of Guiding Star projects in Iowa.
