Life is VERY Good

Evening of Prayer and Morning Rally and Mass - January 18 and 19, 2018

We invite you to join groups from all over the country at one or both of these events! The Evening of Prayer is an opportunity to pray for the success of the March for Life in changing our hearts and those of others in this country. The Morning Rally and Mass prepares us to take to the streets of Washington D.C. to make our voices heard as we proclaim the gospel of life. If you would like to take a look at Life is VERY Good 2017, please check out our LIVG 2017 Storify which includes a recap video, Bishop Burbidge’s homily, and social media posts from many participants!

Seating is reserved in order of receipt of your registration and payment, and there is a very good chance that we will sell out. Registering sooner rather than later ensures your ability to participate in these events this year!

The events will be held at the EagleBank Arena (formerly Patriot Center) on the campus of George Mason University.

To assist you with preparing for your pilgrimage, we have made the posters available for download.


If you'd like a professional print of the posters, please contact our office. We are happy to provide a small number of them, complimentary. If you need a large quantity, you may either have them printed by your local printer or purchase them from us.


Because this event is on a college campus, parking is extremely limited for the morning event. Please consolidate vehicles as much as possible.
