Several Orthodox Christian parishes in the Austin Texas area will March for Life  at a Rally to be held 01-28-2006. The march is a family event and not a confrontational-type demonstration. It will begin at Republic Square at 1pm; we will walk down Congress Avenue to the capitol grounds where there will be several speakers at 2pm. My parish has been advised to wear a shirt that identifies you as an Orthodox Christian and be ready to sing a lot.

If any of you are near come join us.

In  Christ,
Thomas

I'm glad to hear the Orthodox mobilizing in such a way.  May God bless your efforts!
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

Despite Rain that cleared in time for the March. We had a successful March for Life.  For the first time, THe Orthodox Christians were well represented as a group and no one that attended can say that the Orthodox Church is not Pro-life. A big step for the church in an area that we are quite the minority.

In Christ,
