Join us for the 2019 Youth Rally and Mass for Life prior to the March for Life Chicago on Sunday, January 13.
Expect fun-filled rally activities, energetic music, and inspiring talk led by Steve Angrisano. He is undoubtedly one of the most effective and versatile ministry leaders in the Church today. Always rooted in a spirit of humility and faithfulness, Steve’s easy, honest style of ministry is born from who he is: a committed witness to the life and love of Jesus Christ. The Youth Rally will then end with Mass for Life celebrated next door at Holy Name Cathedral. The Mass for Life will be a sending forth to join the official March for Life Chicago held at the Federal Plaza in Chicago, IL.
