Wilmington is one of the sites for LifeChain, an international silent prayer vigil by Christians to communicate their opposition to abortion and for Catholics to show support for life at all stages. The 2021 date is Sunday, October 3. It runs from 2:30 till 3:30. Because fewer churches and individuals are participating, there will be new locations for some parishes. For Saint Mark parishioners we should gather in the old KMart and Burger King parking lots where signs can be picked up. We will then line up there along College Road.
LifeChain is a simple thing we can easily plug into. It's an international demonstration of ordinary families who stand alongside busy thoroughfares with Pro-Life messages. Is it worth one hour of your time to possibly save an unborn child? Is it worth one hour of your family's time to instill the values of the Culture of Life in your children?
