|Exodus 20:13. Thou Shalt Not Kill. For 40 years our country has flouted this, our Lord’s command.
"The book of Exodus reminds us of the 40-year journey of God’s people through the desert, to the promised land, and the verse Exodus 20:13 states none other than God’s 5th commandment, “Thou Shalt Not Kill.” A most fitting reminder from Almighty God in the year 2013, the 40th year of the legalized killing of the unborn, that life is sacred and must be protected and that the killing must end." - Bishop Farrell's Letter of InvitationJoin Bishop Kevin Farrell and thousands of faithful at the 2013 Roe Memorial Events in remembrance of those lost, to pray for the "exodus" of abortion from our community, and to march and witness to the promise of life!

|Lend a Hand for Life
|Each year, more people flock to downtown Dallas to witness for life. This year we expect even more to mark the 40 year memorial. We need your help in a variety of areas to make these events possible. If you can volunteer your time before or during the events, please click here to fill out the volunteer survey. (If you are a Knight of Columbus interested in helping, please click here.)
As in years past, the Mass will include a Rose Procession, with a representative born each year from 1973 to 2013 carrying a red rose in memory of the million+ children lost each year. If you are interested in participating in the procession, please click here to fill out the volunteer survey or email your name, contact information and birth year to .
|Partner for Life
|Hike for Life is partnering with Dallas March for Life and inviting you to do the same! In addition to marching for life in Dallas on January 19, you can also sponsor the March, or be sponsored as a marcher, to not only help defray the costs of this incredible public witness, but also raise funds to support pro-life ministry throughout the Dallas / Fort Worth area.
Click here to sponsor the March or register as a marcher. A donation of at least $25 or more includes an Exodus 20:13 t-shirt to show everyone where you stand on life before, during and after the March!
