2018 Assembly for Life with Fr. Frank Pavone


The 2018 Assembly for Life on January 21 will bring Massachusetts pro-lifers outside of Route 495 to Worcester's Mechanic Hall, to hear Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life speak on the respect for life.  Other speakers include the Rev. John Daly of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Southbridge, author Don Feder, Matthew Valliere of Patients Rights Action Fund, author and musician Jaymie Stuart Wolfe, and master of ceremonies Margaret Russell, editor of the Worcester Catholic Free Press.

The Assembly for Life began as a way for those who couldn’t travel to Washington, DC, for the annual March for Life, to be able to gather and witness to the value of life and to mark the anniversary of the awful Roe v. Wade that unconstitutionally forced legalization of abortion on all 50 states. Over the years, it has developed into a gathering with a power and purpose of its own as an opportunity to witness to the value and dignity of all human life. 

(Although the Assembly for Life is usually held in Boston's historic Faneuil Hall, that location is undergoing renovations this year and so we are being hosted at Worcester's beautiful Mechanics Hall.)

Help us remember those who deserve our thanks.

These are names of deceased pro-life activists we plan to honor by name at the Assembly on January 21.  We have included as many people as we could remember, but almost minute-by-minute, we remember more. Please check and let us know people you think should be included.

We are really counting on you because we do not want anyone to miss being honored.

Thanks so much for your help!

Please check the list and give us any other names of people to be honored at the 2018 Assembly by emailing us at action@masscitizensforlife.org.
